The most common cysts are sebaceous cysts, which are benign cysts that appear just under the skin. Cysts can sometimes cause pain or discomfort, or may often be painless but cause you to feel self conscious about their appearance. Skin Tags are similar, but are often caused by the skin rubbing in areas where clothes are tight or movement is restricted. Cyst removal or skin tag removal can give your self esteem a boost.
