I had a big cyst on the side of my neck about 3 months ago. Now it has left a lump on my neck. How do i get rid of it?

It is a white-ish lump, think it could be scar tissue. Will it go away on it's own?

I would recommend following a dermatologist. It is possible it could be the sac of the cyst your are feeling. It is also possible you need another intralesional injection for this cyst to become smaller. The dermatologist may also recommend excision of the cyst.
