Brief Answer: Sebaceous cyst should be excised. Detailed Answer: Hi, The cheesy material with pus might be removed from hole on the cyst. But , after healing or closing of the hole, the cyst would develop again. So I advise for complete excision of the cyst. The excision is simple OPD procedure done under local anaesthesia. So, I hope you got my answer. Hole may be closed by drugs or naturally ,but slowly. But may recur. So complete excision of the cyst should be done. You may have to consult a dermatologist. If you have any query, you may ask. Thanks. Dr. Ilyas Patel MD

Thank you. I will have the cyst removed.....but just to clarify, the existing hole that is there right now should be able to close naturally...albeit over a few days?
