Thanks for the question.

This pimple most likely represents a sebaceous cysts. Sebaceous glands are a special type of sweat gland that are prominent in the genital region. The gland duct can sometimes get blocked. If this happens, the fluid builds up and they begin to swell. Sebaceous cysts are very common and generally asymptomatic.If they enlarge or get infected then excision might be needed.

The most common cause of infection is trying to squeeze it and so this should not be done.

So bring this to notice of your GP and doctor will decide whether this needs treatment or just wait and watch.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

I have raised brown bumps on my back and chest . They don t hurt they itch from time to time. They have these small tiny blackhead pores which if I were to sqeeze nothing will come out of it. It like a sack under the skin it can be moved around with your finger . The texture on some is smooth and wrinkled like, some are bigger than others. The first one I experienced on my stomach eventually went away the ones on my back and chest has gotten fairly smaller but have been there for a few years now.
