Treatment for Scrotal Sebaceous Cysts


Scrotal sebaceous cysts are a condition which affects the male genital area with yellowy spots on the scrotum. 

These are not in anyway harmful or uncomfortable. They’re not contagious as with STDs and not indicative of acne or any other skin condition. However, they can be extremely embarrassing simply due to their appearance.

Sebaceous cysts on the skin of the scrotum are often quite numerous in number. They are noticeable due to their colour, which is a pearly pale yellow. This colour is caused by the buildup of oily pus.

They only affect the skin on the outside of the scrotum, unlike epididymal cysts which are usually located inside the scrotum on the surface of the testicle itself.

The good news is that it is relatively quick, easy and pain-free to have these blemishes removed.

Scrotal Sebaceous Cyst Removal

Dr Ross Perry and the team at Skin Surgery & Laser Clinic (Cosmedics Skin Clinics) offer treatment for sebaceous cysts on the scrotum.

They use the latest laser surgery techniques for best results and offer surgical excision/radio surgery with micro excision, which means minimal scarring and often no visible scars at all after healing.

As treatment is delivered by fully qualified doctors and surgeons, they are also able to examine and advise on the issue from a medical perspective.

The service is offered at a choice of 4 London clinics including Harley Street, City, Putney and South Kensington.

Appointments are readily available and patients can book direct without the need for a referral from a doctor or GP.

Treatment for scrotal sebaceous cysts can be usually be completed at the same appointment as the consultation if the patient wishes to go ahead, saving the need for a second appointment.

There’s no need to worry about discomfort as a mild local anaesthetic can be used to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout.

In terms of aftercare, you’ll receive full advice from your doctor on any guidelines with ‘dos and don’ts’ advice to follow while the wounds heal.
