Want to know the name of a bump on arm that has white and round objects when cut open

Several years ago, I saw a picture of a bump on someone s arm that the doctor had cut open. It was comprised of a bunch of separate white roundish things. I can t remember what they were called, & I can t find the picture. I believe it was on the forearm , & I know it wasn t a sebaceous cyst . I don t have the condition, I was telling my daughter-in-law about it & was curious. Thanks!
