Cystic Lesions??- Small Hard Lumps On Face


Along my jaw I have 2 largish pimple-like, pink lumps, except they are not pimples. They have no puss in them, but are hard. On the other side of my jaw I have two more of them, but they are only very small.

I have been to the doctor and all he said was that they are cystic lesions, but didnt offer any advice on if they are removable by a dermatologist. I asked him how I would have got them and he said that since I have a history of having acne, its most likely that a pimple in the past didnt heal properly and it turned into a cyst.

Its so weird cos Ive had it for about 3 years, and it has stayed on my face permanently. I want to know whether I can get them removed somehow eg maybe a derm could inject it with something and make it dry up or something?

I've a female and have had acne since 13yrs of age, and now I'm 21. My pimples have calmed down quite a lot in teh last couple of years, but now I have these ugly pimple like cysts on my face that I dont know how to get rid of.

Has anyone had anything similar to this or could offer me any advice?
