sebaceous cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photographs.
It is looking like a sebaceous cyst.
I would like to know whether any white material comes out on pressing these lesions?

No discharge or anything comes out when I squeezed it like a pimple. It's just barely raised, painless, and doesn't itch. There is a hair growing out of it. What should I do from here?
