Yuck. If your doctor can't determine what's causing it, you might be SOL.....

A cyst, as in one that is created by parasitic organisms or one that has appeared for no known reason? If its a parasitic cyst, your doctor needs to remove it as well as prescribe you treatments to kill the parasites.

There's a lining on the cyst, if physician doesn't strip the lining out, it'll come back...

Why don't you leave it and use it as a conversation piece?

Or if it's right in the center you could pretend to be a Hindu lady while you are out.

I'm going for Golden member status, lol.

Sorry for the bad humor. Didn't mean to make light of your situation - I just couldn't resist.

I'd take the cyst over fat and balding any day!

WTF MAN! You trying to scare everybody with thoughts of parasitic cysts?! Unless he was swimming in the amazon jungle, it's not likely to be freaking parasites.

Most cysts are just filled with fluid, it's not real pleasant fluid, but it's harmless. Some acne is cystic, and can be treated a number of ways with antibiotics, or surgery for more severe cases. Unfortunately they can come back. Try applying some hot compresses to the area every night (hot towel will do), but not to hot. Also, some astrigent can be helpful. Apply it with cotton ball. Go to a dermatologist if you haven't already.

Where on your forehead is it, midforehead? brow? central? lateral/temporal? What type of excision was done? Simple? Needle aspiration?
I'm a senior resident in Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery), and we deal with a lot of cosmetic and facial surgery as well. PM me if you want to talk more.
