Have Sebaceous Prominence. A gland significantly swollen. Masturbation cause?

I have Sebaceous Prominence (from what i ve heard every male does), but one of the pores/glands is significantly swollen (about .75 cm in diameter and .5 cm in height flaccid). I was wondering if this is something I should go to the doctor about. I ve heard it can be caused by excessive masturbation, is this true? Also, I heard using products like clean and clear can help lessen the noticeability of the bumps. Any feedback would be great! Thanks.

Thanks for the query,

It is true that sebaceous glands are hyper active in males.

However the size you mentioned is appearing to be a sebaceous cyst.

Its better to get it removed.

No it has no relation with masturbation.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
