It's an inclusion cyst from a blocked pore and you need to have a doctor excise it under local anesthesia

it needs draining?

Ive had it a few months
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 9 days ago.

Draining it would take it down for a while but unless the cyst wall is removed it will come back

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Why will it come back?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Is it a bad cyst?

With the wall still there it will refill with sebum

Not a bad cyst

No but you can ask your doctor for a cortisone injection
