The most common cyst seen in the head, neck and facial area is the sebaceous cyst. Sebaceous cysts form from sebaceous glands of the skin. Sebaceous glands produce the vital oils to keep your skin moist and healthy looking. Occasionally these glands can form cysts which can be troublesome for people. Usually once formed these cysts continue to grow until they are surgically removed. Generally removing these cysts early is better as smaller scars can be produced. More often than not surgery is the only treatment for facial cysts.
