I'm not sure whether this is hireditary or not . My dad is prone to developing painful cysts behind his ears. Now the same thing is happening to me. I get painful cysts on my thighs, armpits etc and they sometimes bleed. They go away of their own accord, leaving dark marks on my skin behind. The GP said years ago it could be an insect bite and prescribed anti-biotics but then another GP said it could be diabetes, which frightened me because moth sides of my family have a history of this.
But now I have delevoped a really painful cyst behind my left ear. Its sore all the time, especially when I turn my head to the left. Is this related to the cysts on my thighs? I had a cyst behind my ear a few months ago but it wasnt too painful and was only small and went away. But this one is a lot bigger! Does anyone have any explanation? Should I go to my GP again?
