    well , i went to the doctor the other day , after having a bump on my scotum for like 5 months , he said i had an sebaceous cyst, he said i could have it removed but it could leave a scar , but i was wondering do any of you know of a way to reduce the size of one or remove it your self , like with that at home wart remover kit ?

    NOOO,
    have it removed!
    Or go to utube and search for sebaceous cyst.
    I had a blocked tube in my testes removed ( the size of a pool-ball) and
    3 small cysts removed from the side of my penis.
    the damn things would not go away, and they where not warts.
    I have no STD's or anything, but, they looked a little odd.
    scars go away, mine are already faded. on my balls, cant even see it.
    on my dick, almost invisible.
    dont delay, i wish i did it years ago.

    Have it removed. A scar on your scrotum is hardly going to be noticeable.

    It won't go away on it's own and might gradually grow bigger. There's no home treatment that will work.

    Have it removed. My friend's brother had a non cancerous cyst on his balls and it was so large that it looked like he had a 3rd nut and he'd show that to everyone!

    I have no idea if he ever got it removed or not.

    I can't believe he said you could remove it yourself. The thing can get infected and then you will have bigger problems.

    I had two scrotal sebaceous cysts excised by my dermatologist a few months ago. You get a local anesthetic in the scrotum (doesn't feel great) but then you won't feel a thing for the actual excisions. It took me about 10 days to heal and the stitches fell out on their own. That was it.

    You would have to know that I had surgery to see the scars. They are barely noticeable! Good luck.

    unless you're a scrotum model have it removed professionally and don't worry about the scar. It's character.

    sounds like a dermoid cyst, as in a whitish lump in the scrotal sac. easily removed under local anaestetic. sometimes they rupture spontaneously, not unlike a spot. There's no home treatment,sorry to say.
    Had 2 removed a few years ago and they've returned. Luckily they're harmless.

    I just got diagnosed with one of these. It is not on my scrotum, but just to the left in the crease of the leg/pelvis. Doc said I may need surgery, but I need to try a heat pad for a week to see what happens. Due to its location, and now it's size, it hurts when I run or bike!

    Some cysts can come to a head and spontaneously rupture. You can try to make that happen with the regular application of moist heat or use drawing salve under a bandage. Your cyst may be near enough to the surface for that to happen. If it's quite deep though, it's best to get it removed.

    A sebaceous cyst can be annoying, but fortunately it's harmless: a pore that has become stopped up and is collecting the body's naturally produced oil. If it's small enough, I've heard of its being home-treated by puncturing it (a shallow, tolerable pinprick) and squeezing the collected matter out. If too large, the surgical removal by a doctor is anything but a major operation: local anesthetic and a small scalpel slice. I agree with other posters--it would be best to have it removed...and scarring should be negligible and inclined to fade with time. I have a friend who had a honkin' big, slowly growing one on his forehead for a hell of a lot longer than I would have tolerated it. The scar is now, a couple of years later, practically invisible.
