Raised brown bumps with black heads on back and chest causing periodic itching. Cause and cure?

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.

Dermatologist 's  Response

From the description, these could probably be sebaceous cysts. These are benign oil gland cysts underneath the skin, easily movable and have a central punctum or a black spot. Sometimes on squeezing, the lesions may discharge oily or cheesy liquid. The best treatment option is to get them removed by surgically excising the cyst. For the same consult a surgeon or a dermatologist. Take care.
