Hi there.
The bump on the head albeit related to vision is most likely a cystic lesion unrelated to the bump. More often than not, what you are describing will be a sebaceous cyst that needs a simple excision under local anaesthesia. Prior to this a B.P & opthalmology (eye) check up is in order in person given your particular complaint. I dont envisage any long term issues. But one has to do this in person with a general surgeon, competent Gp or a dermatosurgeon on the ground & am afraid this is the best advice we can offer online! Cheers!

Hi.. I have a sebasceous cyst on my forehead that I am most likely going to remove. It is not (at this time) inflamed.. Its just a 'bump' with no redness at all. My primary physician gave me a script to see a plastic surgeon (considering its on my face), however, Im wondering if I should see a dermatologist first. My concern is, that although a plastic surgeon is good at 'surgery'...are they competent to treat a 'cyst' on a face...Any thoughts??

I have a huge (almost tangerine size) sebacious cyst under my belly (I am obese). It has been draining a thick bloody pus discharge. I also have three very large ones under my left armpit. How can I get rid of them forever? My doc said that it would take a years worth of antibiotics, even though he has never looked at thime.

I had a sebacious cyst removed on the back of my neck. Four days before that I started on a week course of Flucloxacillin sodium 500 gram (3 per day). Right after the end of the course I came down with a cold (flu?) very sudden. It's unusual for me to come down so suddenly. Could it be a side-effect of the course. Lowered white blood cell count?
