Bump left over from cyst for 5 years?

Recommended Posts

This is a random question, but I'm just curious. I had a huge, painful cyst on the side of my nose when I was 16. It took a month or so to go away, but ever since I've had this small bump left over from where the cyst was. I'm 21 now and the bump is still there. It's not noticible and you can't really see it, but I can feel it.

So...is this normal? Why is there still a mini bump from a cyst I had over 5 years ago?

This is not uncommon. My guess is that it is filled with white cheesey sebaceous material. What may start out as a cystic acne pimple, can morph into a sebaceous type cyst. If it bothers you have a derm or a plastic surgeon remove it.

Alternatively it could be merely scar tissue.
