Oil Gland Removal, Incise and Drain Surgery (Sebaceous Cyst)

Sebaceous cysts are benign growths originating from the oil glands located in the skin. They form due to a blockage in the outlet of a sebaceous gland which normally allows the oils (sebum) produced by that gland to surface onto the skin. Often painless, however, may become inflamed or infected and might require treatment such as the use of antibiotics and/or a surgical drainage procedure followed by an excise.
