We just returned from our visit to Dr B. He said we had good news and bad news, but the bad news wasn't so bad.
There are two lumps, one on Sky's neck just under the ear. That one is pretty good sized, maybe the size of a nickel. There is another on his side that is smaller about the size of a dime. Nurse Sarah shaved the two areas so we could get a good look. Then Dr B withdrew some fluid to look at under the microscope.
They're both sebaceous cysts. That's the good news. The bad news is that the smaller one has burst and is draining on the inside. It's painful and we're going to apply hot compresses to it till it stops draining and is no longer painful, then we'll have them both removed. If these cysts drain outside, they're ok, but when they drain inwardly they cause inflammation. If they do it once, they tend to grow again, then drain again causing more inflammation. So to break the cycle, Sky will have them both removed.
