Sebaceous cysts, also known as epidermoid cysts, are common noncancerous bumps that form beneath the skin's surface. Although usually harmless, they can cause discomfort, infection, and aesthetic concerns. At Nassim Plastic Surgery in Singapore, we understand the impact of sebaceous cysts on your well-being and self-confidence. In this article, we will delve into the nature of sebaceous cysts, their symptoms, management, and the importance of surgical removal when necessary.
