I get these sebaceous cysts on my head, which are harmless, but annoying and a bit embarrassing since I shave my head. I think the first one I had removed was in 2009. My doctor at the time actually referred me to a surgeon and I got knocked out for the removal. My new doc just cuts them out in his office. It’s a really quick procedure and this in the third one he’s done over the last couple of years. After this area heals I have another one on the back of my head to go get removed.
