Sebaceous hyperplasia is a common, benign condition of sebaceous glands in adults of middle age or older. Lesions can be single or multiple and manifest as yellowish, soft, small papules on the face (particularly nose, cheeks, and forehead). Sebaceous hyperplasia occasionally also occurs on the chest, areola, mouth, scrotum, foreskin, shaft of penis and vulva. There are cases when this skin condition develops giant bumps, a linear or zosteriform arrangement.

The lesions of sebaceous hyperplasia are known to be benign and have no known potential for malignant transformation even if they might be associated with nonmelanoma skin cancer in transplantation patient. The bumps of the sebaceous hyperplasia are asymptomatic, soft, discrete and yellow-orange, with a smooth surface. You might report one or multiple lesions on various areas on the face. It is always recommended to avoid scratching, shaving or brutalizing them because the bumps might become red, irritated or even bleed.

The sebaceous hyperplasia skin condition is often confused with acne, sebaceous adenoma, sebaceous carcinoma, Sarcoidosis, Cowden disease, basal cell carcinoma, Lipoid Proteinosis and many others. However, experts in dermatology need no laboratory studies in order to find out the diagnostic, although biopsy is occasionally indicated to exclude basal cell carcinoma. 

Sebaceous Hyperplasia is completely benign therefore it doesn’t require a treatment. However, these sebaceous growths can be cosmetically unfavorable and sometimes bothersome if irritated. It has been observed that these growths can recur if they are not completely destroyed or excised, therefore natural remedies and soft interventions might ameliorate the condition but do not solve it.
