A nasty cyst popped by a dude's friend with mechanic's gloves.  A lot of stinky keratin came out of this one.  It was very painful I'm sure.

Wikipedia:  A sebaceous cyst /sɪˈbʃəs sɪst/ is a term that loosely refers to either epidermoid cysts (also known as epidermal cysts; L72.0) or pilar cysts (also known as trichilemmal cysts; L72.1). Because an epidermoid cyst originates in the epidermis and a pilar cyst originates from hair follicles, by definition, neither type of cyst is strictly a sebaceous cyst. The name is regarded as a misnomer as the fatty, white, semi-solid material in both of these cyst entities is not sebum, but keratin. Furthermore, under the microscope neither entity contains sebaceous glands. In practice, however, the terms are often used interchangeably.

"True" sebaceous cysts are relatively rare and are known as steatocystomas or, if multiple, as steatocystoma multiplex.

Types of Cysts

  • Acne cyst – Pseudocysts associated with cystic acne. Actually an inflammatory nodule with or without an associated epidermoid inclusion cyst.
  • Aneurysmal bone cyst - Aggressive lesion with radiographic cystic appearance
  • Arachnoid cyst (between the surface of the brain and the cranial base or on the arachnoid membrane)
  • Baker's cyst or popliteal cyst (behind the knee joint)
  • Bartholin's cyst
  • Breast cyst
  • Buccal bifurcation cyst
  • Calcifying odontogenic cyst
  • Chalazion cyst (eyelid)
  • Chocolate cyst of ovary
  • Choroid plexus cyst (brain)
  • Colloid cyst
  • Cysticercal cyst - the larval stage of Taenia sp. (Crain's backs)
  • Dentigerous cyst (associated with the crowns of non-erupted teeth)
  • Dermoid cyst (ovaries, testes, many other locations from head to tailbone)
  • Epididymal cyst (found in the vessels attached to the testes)
  • Ganglion cyst (hand/foot joints and tendons)
  • Glandular odontogenic cyst
  • Glial cyst (in the brain)
  • Gartner's duct cyst (vaginal or vulvar cyst of embryological origin)
  • Hydatid cyst (larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus (tapeworm))
  • Hydrocele (testicle)
  • Keratocyst (in the jaws, these can appear solitary or associated with the Gorlin-Goltz or Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. The latest World Health Organization classification considers Keratocysts as tumors rather than cysts)
  • Liver cystic disease
  • Meibomian cyst (eyelid)
  • Mucoid cyst (ganglion cysts of the digits)
  • Mucous cyst of the oral mucosa
  • Nabothian cyst (cervix)
  • Nasolabial duct cyst
  • Odontogenic cyst (teeth)
  • Ovarian cyst (ovaries, functional and pathological)
  • Pancreatic cyst
  • Paradental cyst
  • Parapelvic cyst (kidney)
  • Paratubal cyst (fallopian tube)
  • Periapical cyst - This cyst, also known as radicular cyst, is the most common odontogenic cyst
  • Pericardial cyst
  • Peritoneal cyst (lining of the abdominal cavity)
  • Pilar cyst (cyst of the scalp)
  • Pilonidal cyst (skin infection near tailbone)
  • Renal cyst (kidneys)
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Pineal gland cyst
  • Radicular cyst - associated with the roots of non-vital teeth, also known as periapical cyst
  • Residual cyst
  • Sebaceous cyst - sac below skin
  • Spermatocele (testicle)
  • Stafne static bone cyst (An anatomic variant with radiographic cystic appearance in the posterior mandible)
  • Tarlov cyst (spine)
  • Trichilemmal cyst – Same as a pilar cyst. A familial cyst of the scalp.
  • Vocal fold cyst
