I finally got the opportunity to ask my friendly G.P. about an alarming growth on my head. It feels like a dangerous pea-sized tumor that wiggles under my finger when I obsessively palpate it. Doc checked it out and offered a quick diagnosis. "It's a sebaceous cyst," she said, confidently.

"So, it's not cancer, then?" I confirmed.

"No," she said. "It's more like a big zit."

Good to know. I can't pop it, but it won't kill me.

At least you can still play with it...

I had one of those on my neck. It got really big and gross, so they lanced it and it was so disgusting. All that's left is a really tiny bump, like a large grain of sand. I stay away from it as much as possible.
