Is sebaceous cyst related to PCOD and endometriosis ?

Hello, Today I went for a CT scan for a lump on the back of my head. It has been growing for the past few months and has become painful in the past 4 days. I am a 30 y/o african american female. I exercise regularly but I am still overweight. In 2004 I was diagnosed with endometriosis and polycystic ovarian disease. About 4 years afterwards, I noticed something growing on my right cheek. When I went to the dermatologist, she told me that it was a cystic lesion . I have had several surgeries to remove cysts , tumors (benign), and adhesions but none moved past my reproductive system (that I know of) until the one on my face developed. After that, I had a mass grow under my breast last year and that was removed a week later. I have also been developing rashes all over my body, something as simple as a scratch will turn into a rash or they develop from nothing at all. Sometimes they have been extremely itchy, sometimes not and this began developing in 2009. Nothing has been cancerous but I cannot help being concerned about the possibility that it may not be just a cyst or benign tumor one day. I am looking for connections in my medical history and causes for these cycts. The recent one from todays tests say that its a sebaceous cyst . Is there any connection to all of this or a disease unknown to me that links everything else together? I am also experiencing high bp, which I never have had even when I was close to 300 lbs and after losing 75 lbs, I don t understand the sudden increase in my bp. Any suggestions for specialists, diet, exercise, possible causes, or anything at all would greatly be appreciated. I am truly terrified that if something does not change now, the simple things I have will become possible life threatening complications. Thank you, Erika Winslow
