Caption: Infected sebaceous cyst (centre) on the back of a 47-year-old man. Image 2 of 2. A sebaceous cyst is a sac-like swelling under the skin filled with sebum, the oily product of the skin's sebaceous glands. It occurs when the glands becomes blocked. Most cysts heal on their own, but some require surgical removal. Here the cyst has burst and released the infected sebum as a puss-like ooze. The area around the cyst has also formed a scab. For an image of the same cyst 1 week earlier, see: C001/7296.
