Sebaceous Cyst Looks Like a Tumour

Posted by Prahallad Panda on 6:30 PM Comments

An aged male person with a protruding swelling over left shoulder, without any pain for more than 3 years is seen in the image. The swelling looks a little bluish, soft, painless, fixed to skin, normal temperature and does not give rise to pain on touch; diagnosed as sebaceous cyst.

 It was removed by surgery.
 The wound healed nicely and the patient is happy.





Sebaceous cysts occur in skin mostly due to blockade of sebum producing glands. Those may get infected. Some microbe called Domodex folliculorum, sometimes found in a cyst.
