What vets commonly describe as "peas" in the skin usually turn out to be cystic; in other words, when lanced, a thick andsebaceous (oily) exudate can be expressed as found in epidermoid cysts. These are invariably benign and of no significance.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
