Description:This image depicts an area of scrotal skin upon which had developed a sebaceous cyst, which occurs when an oil producing gland of the skin becomes clogged with dead skin cells and other debris, and swells with the further production of sebum, or oil. See PHIL 14660, for a closer view of this cutaneous lesion.
Sebaceous glands produce oil at the base of each hair follicle, which helps to lubricate the hair shaft as it continues to grow, and move towards the uppermost surface of the skin, thereby, becoming visible as hair.
