A sebaceous cyst is a closed sac occurring just under the skin which contains a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking substance called keratin. Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles and excessive testosterone production will cause such cysts.
They may cause pain when infected but unless or until the skin is being affected with fungal infection, chances of them causing itching are less.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

I just want to know an answer to my question.
