For a year now, I've had a flattened bump on my under arm. It first started out as a blackhead, so I popped it. After that it stayed for several months. I tried to pop it still several times but it was to painful. When I finally popped it, a brown, rock solid nugget popped out of it. Now, it has flattened down but is still purple-ish, giving the impression of being bruised, and still looks as if there is something still inside. What is it?

Looks like a Sebaceous cyst.

These cysts have to be removed surgically as if their wall is not removed, they recur.

Surgery for cyst removal is done under local anesthesia.

It gives a permanent solution.
