Skin cysts are common harmless lesions typically affecting the trunk, head and neck.  They often appear as firm round pale lesions beneath the skin and can become inflamed, tender and painful.  Sometimes they may have a central “black pore.”  Cysts occur when a sac forms and fills with dead skin cells and oil called sebum which appear as a cheese-like material. The entire sac needs to be removed or they are likely to reoccur.

Lipomas are also harmless but are generally formed of fatty tissue which can feel either soft, firm or squishy. Like cysts, they will not go away without surgery.
