A cyst is a sac-like pocket of membranous tissue that is filled with fluid, air, or other substances. Cysts may form practically anywhere in your body, even beneath your skin. Cysts come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The majority of cysts are benign, or noncancerous. The necessity for treatment of a cyst is determined by a variety of criteria, including if the cyst is inflammatory or infected, whether the cyst causes pain or discomfort, the location of the cyst, and the kind of cyst. If you're unsure whether you have a skin problem, snap a photo and submit it to an online dermatologist or see someone like Dr Lee.

Cysts might look different based on their type and location. An epidermoid cyst, on the other hand, is a tiny, slow-growing, benign cyst that, is most usually found on the genitals, back, neck, head, or face (just like Jessica's). If it is inflamed or infected, it may become bloated, red, or painful. It seems to be a flesh-colored, tanned, or yellowish lump packed with a thick substance. It is generally caused by a keratin accumulation beneath the skin. They're full of cheesy-looking white keratin debris. They are usually painless. Furthermore, they can, however, become swollen and irritating. They do not need to be removed unless they are irritating if the diagnosis is in doubt.

Epidermoid cysts are typically caused by keratin buildup. Keratin is a protein that naturally appears in skin cells. Cysts form when protein gets trapped beneath the skin as a result of a disturbance to the skin or a hair follicle. These cysts can form for a variety of reasons, but damage to the skin is considered to be the most common. When there are a lot of them, an underlying genetic condition like Gardner syndrome might be the culprit.
