Sebaceous Gland Hyperplasia
Sebaceous gland hyperplasia is a condition of small yellow-colored facial bumps often with a central depressed pore.  They represent overgrowth of the oil gland which eventually encircles its associated pore.  While these lesions are not cancerous, they can mimic skin cancer and need to be properly diagnosed.  Having several sebaceous hyperplasia lesions can be cosmetically concerning.  Fortunately, the condition can be treated by electrosurgery, liquid nitrogen freezing, and laser therapy.  Despite treatment, lesions can recur, and new lesions may develop over time.
