What is the cause of sebaceous cysts?


Sebaceous cyts origin out of your sebaceous organ. The sebaceous organ makes the oil called sebum that coats your hair and skin. Cysts can form if the organ or its parts, the entry where oil can leave, gets to be distinctly harmed or blocked. This for the most part happens because of an injury.

The injury might be a scratch, a surgical injury, or a skin condition, for example, skin break out. Sebaceous blisters develop gradually, so the injury may have happened months or weeks before you see the cyst.

Different reasons for a sebaceous cyst may include:

• a distorted or disfigured vessel

• damage to the organ due to the surgery

• genetic conditions, for example, Gardner's disorder or basal cell nevus disorder
