anyone had a cyst under your skin?

I think I may have a cyst under my skin on my inner thigh, it is a hard lump that is a little sore. I dont think I would have even noticed it had it not been tender to the touch. there is no discoloration. I do plan to make an appt with my dr. on monday but I was just wondering if anyone had ever had a cyst and if it was similar..if so what did they do for it or did they just leave it alone?

  • Yes, if its a cyst. I've had one removed because it got infected and irritated. They didn't want to do it though and wanted to only do medication because sometimes when they remove them they come back larger. But if it is a boil, they are very painful too. Good luck!

  • My husband gets them under his scalp. The doc numbs the area with lidocaine and slices it open and removes it whole.
