Hi thanks for your question
Once sebacious cyst is infected it is difficult to remove it completely and some portion of its wall remain there which regrows again .The second cyst by the side of first cyst could be extension of first.Get your both cyst removed when they are not infected as it easy to remove them completely.
Hope this answers your question.
