Yes, sebaceous cyst is notorious for being recurrent.
The chances of recurrence is reduced if the cyst is removed as a whole.
And that is possible only by means of surgery.
what is the cause for it
The cause is blocked sebaceous glands.
The blocked gland can occur due to a preexisting infection, oily skin or due to unknown factors.
