If it isn't growing or painful it isn't a problem.

Such a sebaceous cyst occurs when, for example, an oil gland does not have an opening to the skin surface, and the oil secretions from THAT gland cannot be drained to the surface, keeping the skin healthy. Don't worry though, there are typically plenty of other sebaceous glands that are doing the same thing.
