Sebaceous Cysts

I have been to many dermatologist and I have been told I have sebaceous cysts that are non-malignant on my arms, neck, legs etc. and I had a physical that showed my thyroxine is higher than what it needs to be. Considering the thyroids are in the lower part of the neck I was wondering if the cysts had anything to do with the high result?

Hi,

'Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles, excessive testosterone production, will cause such cysts.'

' Surgical excision of a sebaceous cyst is a simple procedure to completely remove the sac and its contents.

There are three general approaches used: traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision.'

You could read more about this at the following link -

Let us know about how you are doing and if you need any other information.

Regards.
