Pimple or something on my neck?

I've had something on my neck for a couple months. I think its a pimple or a wart, but it's been there for so long, i don't know. I've tried to pop it and no luck. It's raised and looks white-ish. What should I do? Thanks.

Hello,
It can be a sebaceous cyst, wart or benign skin growth. Sebaceous cyst may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles and excessive testosterone production will cause such cysts.

Generally no treatment is required but they become painful then it means they are infected,Then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
