Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the photo is upside down but its the ball I am talking about it just came one day about 4 weeks ago and hasnt gone

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Got it--thanks. Has it stayed that size all this time?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I think it has gone a fraction bigger but its debatable and as I suffer with health anxiety I cant trust my own opinions sometimes

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Nothing serious and nothing really to worry about--not cancer or an STD if those were your worries. This is a simple benign cyst and nothing more. It may get larger with time so have a doctor take a look. It only takes a minor office procedure to excise it and that's all it takes

I seem to get a lot of cycts why is this, from my eye to neck and have some removed in past...


 


This has been going on for about 7 years...


 


Any reason?


 


Aslo any home remedies I can try?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
They're just sebaceous cysts--clogged oil glands. Some people just get several of them and no specific cause although limiting fat in the diet may help. For this on you can try warm moist packs and calendula cream to see if it will drain
