Lipomas are small growths containing accumulations of fat cells, in thin fibrous capsules that are moveable and soft and have a rubbery consistency, they do not cause pain and slightly change their size over the years, in some cases maintaining their initial ones. The cause of lipoma is not very well-determined, however a genetic trait has been observed. What is most important about lipomas, is that these skin growths are noncancerous. Nevertheless, if becoming symptomatic, such as becoming painful or tender, infected, draining a foul-smelling discharge, interfering with movement and function, increasing in size over short periods of time or becoming highly unsightly and bothersome, you should immediately see a doctor.

Sebaceous cysts are also lumps that appear underneath the skin, containing keratin and usually manifesting due to a swollen hair follicle, a skin trauma or an impaired sebaceous gland. Like lipomas, sebaceous cysts are noncancerous and usually asymptomatic. But they can get infected, and become painful, tender, redness and increased temperature appear in the affected area and the lesion will drain a foul-smelling discharge. When this happens, it is recommended that you see a doctor or a dermatologist.

Renew skin & Health Clinic ensures thorough skin examinations, as an accurate diagnosis is equally important with the treatment itself. If our GP finds the lesion suspicious, you will be further referred to a private dermatologist for examination. In some cases, biopsy may also be required to rule out any other conditions that may resemble the sebaceous cysts on your skin.

A preferred method for lipoma and sebaceous cysts, if it’s the case, is minor surgery, more exactly complete extraction of the skin growth. The procedure is carried out under local anesthetic, being thus painless and although closing the wound may require stitches, the scarring will be minimal. Incisions are made around the skin growths, after which these are removed completely, in the case of sebaceous cysts, the removal of the sac being essential in preventing recurrence.
