A visit to the Doctor's Office

Earlier this year, I developed a small lump on the back of my neck. The doctor said he thought ot was a fatty cyst. About three weeks ago the lump grew from marble size to golf ball size and began to hurt. Turns out it is a Sebaceous Cyst which usually are harmless but can become inflamed and painful - like mine. The Doctor drained the fluid and packed the hole with gauss to keep it open to allow drainage and sent me home. I will be going back tomorrow to have the packing changed.
