    Anyone have a sebacious cyst removed? I had one taken out last week that was infected on my back. It is still pretty nasty and drains quite a bit. Not to mention I cannot lean back in a chair yet for more than a few minutes. I am wondering how long it takes to heal. And if it came back. I understand that they will come back sometimes.

    Those things can get pretty foul, and can abscess. I would think that if it doesn't get better - become less tender, slower drainage - you ought to boogey back to the MD.

    I had one removed, from my back as well. It drained for quite a while, took a while to not be painful. Just keep draining it and putting alchohol on it, it should heal. Mine didn't come back. If it starts getting really red around it, head back to the doctor.

    Would Bud Light suffice or should one get genuine Budweiser? :new_all_coholic:

    I have had Sebaceous Cysts on my scalp since I was a teenager. Every 6 months or so, I go into my family physician and he makes a tiny incision w/ a scalpal after numbing the spots. He usually gets a sac (hard formed) that is off white in color and shaped like a kidney bean. They all have tested back from pathology as nothing and I keep getting them cut out. My doctor does not have to shave the spot that he cuts, he usually puts two stitches in each one and then in 7-10 days I have him pull the stitches out. Very simple.

    I have often wondered why I get them and no one else in my family? Can I prevent them?
