hi everyone, iv been to the doctors a few times & had a hospital consultation as i have loads of small sebaceous cysts on my scrotum (ballbag). The doctors are refusing to remove them or even the larger ones as they say they ar'nt big enough or worth while removing. the problem is they rub on my underwear & leg & become very sore & also are very embarrassing when im with a lucky (or unlucky lady lol) and are really affecting my self esteem. Does anyone know of a safe way of removing them myself or can anyone point me in the direction of someone who can help me?

I've got 10+ cysts on my scrotum, none are infected. One popped and drained over-night while I slept, in the morning I cleaned up and bandaged the cyst, it healed up very well and hasn't gotten bigger since. I decided to drain one myself, got a razor blade sanitized it and the area to be cut (top of the cyst). Didn't have anyway of numbing the area. I cut a small slit in the top and making sure to cut into the cyst so it can be squeezed\drained out. It took a bit of smashing but I got most of it out, leaving the cyst sack inside as taking it out would be much more painful, just used some liquid bandage to seal the cut(be sure to let the liquid bandage dry). It healed very well hasn't leaked or got infected. After that I decided to try to remove one of the cysts sack and all, I picked one of the cysts that is alone and not close to another about the size of a pea, same as before razor blade & area sanitized, cut a slit in the top of the cyst being careful this time to NOT cut into the cyst, just the thin layer of skin. working the skin around the cyst get the skin pulled down and the cyst pulled out, but the cyst is connected inside and I had to do alot of twisting and pulling to get it to tear free(Very Painful I had to scream to get it done) but I did get the sack out and same as before I used liquid bandage to seal the cut(liquid bandage hurts more than the cutting and tearing) it's been 4 days and it's healing nicely. I have many more that need removed, but i'll wait till I can get some Lidocaine numbing cream as that would make it much more easier. I thought about cutting into one of my cysts for a very long time, I'm 36 years old and have had them since my early teens(although much smaller at that time) i've done alot of research and watched alot of doctors(online videos) cut into a scrotal sebaceous cyst and remove it.

Go back to the doctor and tell them you're going to cut them out yourself if they are not.
