Causes, Symptoms, Treatments & Removal

Overview

What is a pilonidal cyst?

A pilonidal cyst is a round sac of tissue that’s filled with air or fluid. This common type of cyst is located in the crease of the buttocks and is usually caused by a skin infection. Pilonidal cysts are a common condition, with more than 70,000 cases reported in the U.S. every year. But many people feel too embarrassed to mention it – even to their healthcare providers.

Pilonidal cysts can cause pain and need to be treated. Pilonidal cysts can be a one-time (acute) problem or you may have chronic (returning) cysts. If they’re not treated, chronic pilonidal cysts can also lead to abscesses (swollen pockets of infection) and sinus cavities (empty spaces underneath the skin).

A pilonidal cyst (also called pilonidal cyst disease, intergluteal pilonidal disease or pilonidal sinus) is a skin condition that happens in the crease of the buttocks — anywhere from the tailbone to the anus. A pilonidal cyst can be extremely painful especially when sitting.

These cysts are usually caused by a skin infection and they often have ingrown hairs inside. During World War II, pilonidal cysts were often called “Jeep driver’s disease” because they’re more common in people who sit often.

Who can get a pilonidal cyst?

Anyone can get a pilonidal cyst, but certain people are at higher risk:

  • Men (men are three to four times more likely to be diagnosed with a pilonidal cyst than women)
  • People between puberty and age 40 (the average age is between 20 and 35).
  • Workers who sit all day (like truck drivers and office workers).
  • Overweight people (ranging from overweight to obese).
  • People with thick or rough body hair (this can run in your family).
  • People who wear tight clothing (this can worsen the skin condition).

Is a pilonidal cyst hereditary?

In some cases, a pilonidal cyst can be hereditary (you can inherit it from a family member). Your family history can play a role in determining if you get pilonidal cysts, for example if rough body hair runs in your family.

Is a pilonidal cyst contagious?

A pilonidal cyst is a non-contagious skin condition – you can’t spread it (just like a pimple). Currently, many researchers believe that pilonidal cysts are caused by ingrown hairs.

Symptoms and Causes

What causes a pilonidal cyst?

Experts don’t yet know all the causes of pilonidal cysts. However, they do know that ingrown hairs found in the crease of the buttocks result in a skin infection that causes a pilonidal cyst to form. Think of this condition like getting a sliver of wood stuck in your skin, except it’s an ingrown hair instead.

If it’s not treated, a pilonidal cyst can possibly lead to an abscess or a sinus cavity. Those are both signs that the skin infection is getting worse.

What are the symptoms of a pilonidal cyst?

  • Quickly get medical attention if you notice any of these symptoms:
  • Pain which often gets worse when you’re sitting.
  • A small dimple or large swollen area between your buttocks. This is usually the pilonidal cyst. You may notice the area is red and feels tender.
  • An abscess with draining pus or blood. This fluid may be foul-smelling.
  • Nausea, fever and extreme tiredness (fatigue).

Can I get a pilonidal cyst while I’m pregnant?

Although pilonidal cysts are much more common in men, pregnant women can get them too. If you’re experiencing pain in your buttocks, it could be a sign of a pilonidal cyst and not just a normal discomfort of pregnancy. It’s usually best in that case to contact your provider and get checked.

Diagnosis and Tests

How is a pilonidal cyst diagnosed?

Your provider will start by giving you a full physical examination. During the exam they’ll check the crease of your buttocks for signs of a pilonidal cyst.

If you have a pilonidal cyst, it should be visible to the naked eye. Your provider might spot what looks like a pimple or oozing cyst. If so, they may also ask you several questions, including:

  • Has the cyst changed in appearance?
  • Is it draining any fluid?
  • Do you have any other symptoms?

Very rarely, your provider may order a CT or MRI to look for any sinus cavities (little holes) which may have formed under the surface of your skin.

Management and Treatment

How is a pilonidal cyst treated?

If you are diagnosed with one or more pilonidal cysts, you will receive a treatment plan that best fits your individual case. This treatment will depend on the answers to several questions such as:

  • Have you had a pilonidal cyst before?
  • Have you also had any other skin issues (like an abscess or sinus) in the same area?
  • How quickly are you recovering?

Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may or may not need surgery to remove your pilonidal cyst. There are several other treatment methods available besides surgery, including:

  • Draining the cyst: This procedure can happen right in your provider’s office. A small incision (cut) will be made to open and drain fluid from your infected cyst.
  • Injections: Injections (phenol, an acidic chemical compound) can treat and prevent mild and moderate pilonidal cysts.
  • Antibiotics: Antibiotics can treat skin inflammation. However, antibiotics can’t heal pilonidal cysts on their own.
  • Laser therapy: Laser therapy can remove hair which otherwise might become ingrown and cause more pilonidal cysts to come back.

While waiting for your treatment, you can try to manage any pain you may feel by using a warm compress on the affected area to soothe your skin. You might also feel less pain when using an inflatable seat or mattress.

Will I need surgery for a pilonidal cyst?

If you have a chronic pilonidal cyst or it has gotten worse and formed a sinus cavity under your skin, it’s a serious case and you may need surgery to excise (remove) the cyst entirely. Afterward, the surgeon might either leave the wound open for packing (inserting gauze) or close the wound with sutures or a skin flap (skin taken from a healthy part of your body).

Whenever you have surgery, it’s important to take good care of your wound so it doesn’t get infected. Your provider will tell you how to keep your wound clean (including shaving the area) and how long you should keep it covered. They’ll also tell you the warning signs of infection and when you should call your provider.

Can a pilonidal cyst go away on its own?

Pilonidal cysts sometimes drain and disappear on their own. If you have chronic pilonidal cysts, your symptoms may come and go over time.

Can a pilonidal cyst be cured?

Pilonidal cysts can sometimes be cured with surgery and your skin might heal fully. However, even after surgery, a pilonidal cyst can remain as a chronic, returning condition. This is true especially if the condition has gotten worse or if pilonidal cysts run in your family.

Prevention

How can pilonidal cysts be prevented?

There are several steps you can take to help prevent getting pilonidal cysts or to keep them from coming back. These steps include:

  • Regularly washing and drying your buttocks (to keep the area clean).
  • Losing weight (if you are currently overweight) to lower your risk.
  • Avoiding sitting for too long (if your job allows) to keep pressure off the area.
  • Shaving the hair around your buttocks (once a week or more). You can also try using a hair removal product to avoid getting ingrown hairs.

Outlook / Prognosis

Is a pilonidal cyst fatal?

A pilonidal cyst is not fatal in itself. Aside from the pain you may feel, though, there’s always a chance that a cyst can pose several long-term health issues. These health risks can include:

  • One or more returning cysts can form in the same area (or elsewhere, but typically in the crease of your buttocks). If your cyst comes back, you have chronic pilondial disease.
  • Systemic infection (when an infection spreads throughout your body). Body-wide infection can quickly become life-threatening.
  • Cancer (specifically squamous cell carcinoma or SCC). SCC is rarely caused by a pilonidal cyst. But this type of skin cancer can sometimes happen if you get a pilonidal cyst. If your provider diagnoses you with a pilonidal cyst, they’ll usually take a pus sample and test it just to be sure it’s not cancerous.

Be sure to see your provider if you develop symptoms of a pilonidal cyst.

Do I need to leave work if I have a pilonidal cyst?

Depending on your symptoms, you might need to take some time off of work if you have a pilonidal cyst. This condition can cause a lot of discomfort especially if you’re sitting for a long period of time. Talk to your provider about ways to be more comfortable at work and treatment options to relieve any pain caused by a pilonidal cyst.

A note from Cleveland Clinic

Although a pilonidal cyst is not life-threatening itself, it can become more difficult to treat and turn into a chronic condition if you don’t quickly seek help. That’s why it’s important to get an exam at the first sign of any symptoms of a pilonidal cyst. Always be open with your healthcare provider about your symptoms and concerns.

Pilonidal Cyst Removal – Elk Grove Village, IL: Elk Grove Dermatology

A pilonidal cyst is a fluid-filled, pimple-like sac at the coccyx (tailbone), just below the crack of the buttocks. Pilonidal cysts are prone to infection; if one does become infected, filling with pus, it is technically called a “pilonidal abscess.” Pilonidal abscesses are always treated with excision and drainage because, left untreated, the infection can spread.

Causes of Pilonidal Cysts

Pilonidal cysts are thought to be caused by ingrown hairs (hair follicles are often found in the cysts) or trauma (they were common during World War II in soldiers who spent a great deal of time riding in jeeps, earning the nickname “Jeep disease”). Pilonidal cysts are most common in people between the ages of 15 and 24, and rarely occur in people older than 40. Those with a family history of pilonidal cysts are more likely to develop them.

Risk Factors for Pilonidal Cysts

Those with one or more of the following risk factors are more likely to develop pilonidal cysts:

  • Obesity
  • Inactive lifestyle or occupation
  • Trauma at the site
  • Excess body hair
  • Stiff or coarse hair
  • Poor hygiene

Having a deep cleft between the buttocks also increases the risk of developing pilonidal cysts.

Symptoms of Pilonidal Cysts

Symptoms of pilonidal cysts include the following:

  • Pain and pressure at the bottom of the spine
  • Swelling at the bottom of the spine
  • Redness at the bottom of the spine
  • Draining pus, particularly if malodorous

Fever is also a symptom of pilonidal cysts.

Diagnosis of Pilonidal Cysts

Physical examination is the first step in diagnosing a pilonidal cyst. A physician will be able to observe redness and swelling just above the anus, and inflammation of the surrounding skin. If the patient has a high white-blood-cell count, it confirms the diagnosis.

Treatment of Pilonidal Cysts

A common at-home remedy for a pilonidal cyst is soaking in a hot tub. Although this does not eliminate it, it facilitates the cyst’s coming to a head, making it easier to lance.

Pilonidal cysts are usually infected with Staphylococcus aureus, and will not heal on their own, or with the administration of antibiotics alone. Rather, they must be surgically drained in one of several ways.

Incision and Drainage, with Packing

During this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision and drains the cyst, removing hair follicles, and packing the cavity with gauze. Although incision and drainage is a simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia, it requires frequent changing and repacking of gauze for up to 3 weeks.

Marsupialization

In this outpatient procedure, the surgeon creates a pouch designed to heal without packing. Healing can take as long as 6 weeks, however.

Incision and Drainage, with Immediate Closure of the Wound

During this procedure, the surgeon drains and cleans the wound, and sutures it closed. Although there is no need for packing, and the wound heals fairly quickly, there is a good chance of the cyst’s recurring.

Recovery from Pilonidal Cyst Removal

Pilonidal cyst removal is usually an outpatient procedure. Painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication are typically prescribed to prevent further infection, and keep the patient as comfortable as possible during healing.

Depending on the size of the cyst and the method of its removal, full recovery can take from a week to several weeks. The wound must be kept clean until it heals.

 

Pilonidal Cyst Removal | Tampa General Hospital

Pilonidal cyst removal is a common treatment option for individuals who have developed a pilonidal cyst, which is an abnormal pocket in the skin at the base of the tailbone, usually caused by an embedded hair. This condition is most frequently seen in young men. Risk factors that may contribute to developing a pilonidal cyst include leading and inactive lifestyle, being obese, and having an occupation that requires long periods of time in a sitting position.

If a pilonidal cyst becomes infected, it can be extremely painful, and home remedies or even prescription medications rarely are effective in providing relief. Typically, initial treatment will involve draining the cyst with a small incision. However, for many individuals, drainage is not an effective long-term solution, as pilonidal cysts have a tendency to reoccur. In these cases, a pilonidal cyst removal, also known as a pilonidal cystectomy, may be considered.

Pilonidal cyst removal is a more extensive surgery than cyst drainage, and involves completely removing the affected tissue. There are many different ways to remove a pilonidal cyst and your surgeon will discuss with you which option they feel is the most appropriate for your specific needs.

Tampa General Hospital’s Endoscopy Center is a leading destination for patients dealing with pilonidal cysts. In fact, TGH has been recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals in Gastroenterology & GI Surgery  (earning the #24 spot on the list) as well as Best Florida Hospital for Gastroenterology & GI Surgery by U.S. News & World Report for 2020-2021. Our multidisciplinary team, which includes physicians, surgeons, and other specialists, is committed to upholding the highest standards of care and developing tailored treatment solutions to help our patients find relief.

What Is It Like to Recover from Pilonidal Cyst Surgery?

Over 200,000 people are affected by pilonidal cysts each year. A pilonidal cyst is a bump that forms in the crease of the buttocks.  It causes pain, swelling, and may include drainage of pus if it forms an abscess. There are nonsurgical treatments for these cysts, including antibiotics and local wound care, but some patients require a surgical treatment for more advanced symptoms.

Traditional surgical treatment for pilonidal cysts has required a lengthy, painful recovery time. However, thanks to the cleft lift technique utilized by Dr. Laurence Rosenberg, at Southeastern Plastic Surgery, recovery from pilonidal cyst surgery is quick and relatively painless.

Traditional Surgery versus Cleft Lift Surgery

At Southeastern Plastic Surgery in Tallahassee, FL, Dr. Laurence Rosenberg performs the cleft lift procedure to treat pilonidal cysts in order to reduce pain and recovery so that patient can return to their normal lives as quickly as possible. The recovery from cleft lift operation is quick, with substantially less pain then with traditional surgical techniques.  Unlike the recovery from traditional pilonidal cyst surgery, the cleft lift operation ends with a closed wound – there is no wound packing.

Cleft lift surgery has only a 5% recurrence rate for cysts, whereas traditional pilonidal cyst surgery has a recurrence rate of more than 50%.

Traditional surgery for pilonidal cysts involves excising the wound then packing it with gauze. Recovery from this type of surgery can take weeks or months to heal, is extremely painful, and often results in a recurrence.

Cleft lift surgery is an outpatient surgery that only requires about 1 hour to perform. The wound is excised and closed, requiring no packing. Patients are able to return home the same day, and recovery is relatively quick. The wound is fully sutured and closed, using dissolvable sutures, requiring no packing, and the scar is moved off the midline so that recurrence of cysts and pain are minimized.

How Quickly Can You Sit After Cleft Lift Surgery?

Since cleft lift surgery is an outpatient procedure, patients are able to return home the same day as surgery. They are able to sit and ride home in a car immediately after cleft lift surgery.

How Soon Can You Drive After Surgery?

You are allowed to drive once you stop taking narcotic pain medications. The sutures will dissolve after a few weeks, so there is no need to return to the doctor to have them removed.

Is Recovery Painful?

Recovery from cleft lift surgery can be painful, but we provide medications to help manage pain after surgery. Some patients find the recovery relatively easy, while others find it to be painful, but all patients who have had traditional pilonidal cyst surgery feel the cleft lift operation recovery is significantly less painful than the traditional surgery.

Follow the instructions provided by your surgeon for post-operative care and give yourself time to heal after the procedure so that your body has a chance to fully recover. Within 2 weeks or less, you should be able to return to your normal routine.

Dr. Rosenberg usually sees patients for 1 to 2 follow-up visits after surgery. For out of town patients, he communicates with them via e-mail. He is available to answer questions and check in on your recovery.

Dr. Rosenberg is the only surgeon in the Tallahassee area who performs the cleft lift procedure to treat pilonidal cysts. If you would like to learn more about the cleft lift treatment for pilonidal cyst disease at our Tallahassee plastic surgery practice, please request a consultation or call

Pilonidal Abscess – Colon & Rectal Surgery Associates


What is a pilonidal cyst?

A pilonidal cyst is a cavity underneath the skin over the tailbone. Pilonidal literally means “nest of hair” because the cavity is often found to contain hair. Research indicates that it is an acquired disease resulting from impaction of debris and hair into the midline hair follicles which rupture, spreading infection beneath the skin. This condition is not hereditary.


What are the symptoms?

Some people have no symptoms, therefore no treatment is necessary. Occasionally, pus accumulates in the cyst, causing pain and swelling in the tailbone area to form (abscess). When this occurs, a patient will experience a fever and sometimes acute pain and swelling in the tailbone area. Other people may develop low-grade infections with milder, recurring episodes of pain and swelling.


Who is affected?

This problem is more common in young adults and teenagers. This condition is rare in patients over 40 years of age. It is three times more common in men than women.


How is a pilonidal cyst treated?

Patients with an acute abscess can generally be treated in the doctor’s office. The doctor uses local anesthesia to numb the area. An incision is made to allow for drainage of pus. This immediately relieves pressure and decreases pain. Daily cleansing of the area in the bathtub or shower is important to keep hair and other debris out of the wound. The patient should return for follow up until the wound is healed. Healing occurs rapidly, and wounds are usually completely closed in three weeks. For patients with repeated episodes, or continuing infection, surgery may be required. This is done as an outpatient procedure at a hospital. In most cases, the cyst is opened, cleaned, and allowed to heal from the inside out. Stitches are often used, but they will dissolve in one to two weeks.  After surgery it is important to keep gauze in the wound to keep the skin edges separated until the wound fills in from the bottom. The patient typically returns to the office for follow up visits until the wound is healed. In some instances, a more complex procedure is necessary. Wound hygiene is the single most important part of caring for pilonidal disease. Careful cleansing and dressing of the wound will prevent infection or premature closure of the skin, both of which can lead to recurrent problems.


Will a pilonidal cyst recur?

After surgery approximately 10 percent of patients will develop another cyst. To help prevent the development of another cyst, keep the area free from hair with a depilatory (hair removal) cream or by shaving the area. If hair is allowed to grow back, recurrence is much higher.

Managing Your Pilonidal Cyst – Symptoms & Treatment

What Are Pilonidal Cysts?

A pilonidal cyst is a small sac that forms along the tailbone (coccyx), at the top of the cleft between the buttocks. These cysts usually contain hair and skin debris. They form when a hair on the buttocks grows inward, becomes trapped under the skin, and forms a cyst. One cyst or a row of them can occur. A pilonidal cyst may be harmless. If it becomes infected, it causes symptoms. These cysts affect more men than women, most often young adults, usually before the age of 40.

What Causes Pilonidal Cysts?

The reason cysts form is unknown. Friction and pressure may force hairs down into skin. The body treats the hair as a foreign substance and makes a cyst around it. Friction can occur from tight clothing, bicycling, or long periods of sitting. These cysts occur more often in people with a family history of them. People who have a lot of hair in the buttock area, are overweight, or are inactive have higher risks of getting these cysts. People who have poor hygiene, sweat a lot, or sit a lot are also more likely to have them.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Pilonidal Cysts?

Pilonidal cysts are often harmless but can become infected and painful. Symptoms of infection are pain, tenderness, warmth, redness, and swelling. Pus or an oily discharge can occur.

How Are Pilonidal Cysts Diagnosed?

The health care provider makes a diagnosis from the medical history and physical examination.

How Are Pilonidal Cysts Treated?

The two main treatments are drainage and surgical removal of the cyst. Draining the pus is simple and is done if the cyst flares up. Because cysts tend to come back, after the flare-up has quieted down, surgery is often suggested.

Surgery involves removing the cyst while people are awake and the area is numbed. The surgeon cuts out the cyst and some tissue around it. The cut is usually left open to heal and close itself. Most people go home from the hospital that day. Recovery takes several days. Surgical treatment usually means a complete cure. A small scar will remain.

DOs and DON’Ts in Managing Pilonidal Cysts:

  • DO follow your health care provider’s instructions about taking care of the area.
  • DO use good hygiene. Clean the area with glycerin soap. Keep the area clean and dry. Using a washcloth briskly, shaving, or using depilatory creams helps keep the area free of hair. Don’t use oils or herbal products.
  • DO contact your health care provider if your incision isn’t healing, if it bleeds, or if you develop a fever.
  • DO lose weight if you’re overweight.
  • DON’T ignore symptoms. Call your health care provider if your symptoms don’t get better, if they worsen with treatment, or if you have new symptoms.

90,000 Removal of the coccygeal passage with a laser – prices in Moscow

The epithelial coccygeal passage, or tailbone cyst, is a congenital disease that may not bother for many years. However, its presence significantly increases the risks of developing inflammatory complications with blockage or ingestion of pathogenic bacteria. The only treatment is surgery. Removal of a coccyx cyst with a laser is an effective low-traumatic operation, which is characterized by a short and painless recovery period.

This method has many advantages: bloodlessness, absence of incisions and seams, high cosmetic results. Healing proceeds relatively faster due to the antiseptic and coagulating action of the laser beam: the rehabilitation period does not imply serious restrictions and loss of working capacity for a long period. The operation does not require a hospital stay.

Indications for operation

Closure of the passage with a laser can be recommended by a doctor immediately after detection.It is important not to wait for the development of acute purulent processes. The presence of inflammatory complications in some cases is a limitation to the operation and requires preliminary conservative therapy.

Special aspects of preparation

Before the operation, it is important to make sure that there are no contraindications and to assess the general state of health. This will require laboratory tests and examination by a general practitioner. Also, the proctologist will send for an ultrasound scan and other examinations to assess the structure of the course and its location.You will also need an anesthesiologist’s consultation in order to choose the right method of pain relief.

Before laser removal of the coccygeal passage, the patient is prescribed a diet. Foods that increase the volume of feces and cause fermentation in the intestine should be excluded from the diet. Immediately before the operation, a cleansing enema is performed; in other cases, the doctor will prescribe laxatives. The last meal should be no later than 10-12 hours before the operation.

Procedure

The patient is in a prone position. The doctor treats the surface of the skin with antiseptics, and a thin laser fiber is inserted into the opening of the coccygeal passage. With the help of a laser beam, the stroke is cleaned and literally sealed along its entire length, its outer opening is closed. No punctures or cuts are required, which means no stitches are required. The operation takes no more than an hour – it all depends on the degree of damage to the skin of the sacrum and coccyx.

When excising the coccygeal passage with a laser, the parameters of the laser beam are set taking into account individual characteristics. A beam of light acts at a certain depth and area of ​​tissue, without capturing healthy areas. This ensures high accuracy of the procedure and minimizes the risk of burns and scar formation.

As a result of the intervention, it is possible to eliminate the coccygeal passage with minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues.

Features of the recovery period

The time spent in the clinic is determined by the type of anesthesia.Usually the patient can go home within a few hours. However, it is important to adhere to your doctor’s recommendations so that healing proceeds quickly and comfortably.

Within 4 weeks after the operation, it is necessary to give up intense physical activity, do not go to the bathhouse and sauna, do not take hot baths, and alcohol.

Also, the doctor can prescribe symptomatic therapy and drugs that minimize the risks of complications. Usually the course is limited to antibacterial agents, laxatives, local antiseptics for treatment.

Laser treatment of ECC (SiLaC) can be carried out on the day of treatment under combined anesthesia, with the patient prone, without incisions and additional punctures, while the laser energy allows the cavity to be reduced and closed.The uniqueness of this technique lies in the fact that the radial laser concentrates its action only on the inflamed areas of the epithelium, leaving healthy cells completely intact. Consequently, the recovery process in the postoperative period is much faster and smoother.

After laser treatment with ECC (SiLaC), no special care is required except for general hygienic procedures and closure of the sinuses with sterile compresses. Taking pain relievers is recommended if necessary, taking into account the individual characteristics of the person.

A visit to the doctor after the laser treatment with ECC (SiLaC) takes place on an outpatient basis every two weeks until recovery and includes a physical examination.

What is EKH?

The epithelial-coccygeal passage (ECH) or pilonidal cyst of the coccyx is a congenital pathology that occurs quite often and affects mainly men. Being a congenital anomaly, ECH may not have any symptoms and not manifest itself in any way for many years. Most often, the diagnosis is made after the age of 16, and, sometimes, even by the age of 30.

The piloid cyst of the coccyx is a “stroke” that forms under the skin of the intergluteal fold. It is lined with epithelium and is constantly in contact with the products of life. Sooner or later, congestion, inflammation, infections occur. Any trauma to this area or even hypothermia can lead to inflammation of the coccygeal passage. Then the first symptoms of an unpleasant disease appear.

Symptoms of the epithelial-coccygeal passage:

  • fever and chills;
  • purulent discharge and traces of ichor;
  • Soreness of the entire region of the sacrum;
  • 90,070 swelling and itching of the intergluteal fold;

  • formation of purulent cavities and fistulas;
  • the skin of this area becomes denser, redness occurs.

Diagnostics is carried out by a coloproctologist and then the treatment tactics are selected. Self-medication can be dangerous!

! There is not a single “folk” remedy for the treatment of EKH! If you find symptoms of such inflammation, immediately contact a proctologist! Treatment of EKH is always carried out only by surgery.

Removal of the epithelial coccygeal passage – EKH

Epithelial coccygeal passage (ECH) is a congenital defect in the development of soft tissues of the sacrococcygeal region. It is a narrow cavity, shaped like a tube, one end of which opens in the intergluteal fold, and the other is located in the thickness of the subcutaneous fatty tissue.The length of such a course can reach 10 cm. Its surface is lined with epithelium, that is, its structure is no different from the surface of open skin.

Although EPH exists from birth, the disease does not manifest itself in the first years of life. During puberty (from about 15 years old), hair begins to grow throughout the body, the work of the sebaceous and sweat glands is activated. This also occurs in the confined space of the epithelial coccygeal passage. From its outlet, discharge may be observed, causing moisture in the skin between the buttocks.Overgrown hair can be itchy. The proximity of the EPH outlet to the anus makes this cavity vulnerable to bacterial infection. Therefore, inflammation of the epithelial coccygeal passage occurs quite often. As a rule, EPC is detected precisely during acute inflammation, prompting the patient to see a doctor.

Treatment of the epithelial coccygeal passage is only surgical. Regardless of the stage of the disease, a radical operation is recommended with complete removal of the epithelial canal with all primary openings and branches.

The operation is performed under spinal anesthesia. The planned operation time (taking into account anesthesia) is 3 hours. The period of postoperative stay in the hospital is 3 days. It is allowed to get up on the second day. However, sitting after the operation is not allowed for another 3 weeks. Also, you can not lift weights. The stitches are usually removed on the 10-14th day.

90,000 ᐉ Coccyx cyst treatment: • Operation to remove the coccyx cyst • Prices

In its absolute majority, a cyst is a closed circular cavity.And only the coccyx cyst is a tubular formation, which is an embryonic defect in the development of the skin. Therefore, in another way, the coccyx cyst is called the epithelial coccygeal passage. An uncomplicated cyst, as a rule, does not manifest itself in any way, and therefore remains unnoticed by either the patient or the doctor.

But when the coccyx cyst becomes inflamed, it signals itself by reddening of the skin, fever, aching or throbbing pain. The latter indicates that a typical purulent-inflammatory process is developing.The reason for the formation of a coccyx cyst is a delay inside the coccygeal passage of a mucus-like substance, which is usually excreted in small quantities through the skin passages. A bacterial infection joins the accumulating secretion, which provokes a purulent-inflammatory process.

With its development, the abscess destroys the wall of the coccyx cyst and spreads to the subcutaneous tissue. Usually, the process ends with a breakthrough of pus outward and the formation of a purulent fistula. This condition is called a complicated coccyx cyst.

Removal of the coccyx cyst is the most effective method of treatment

The most effective treatment of the coccyx cyst is performed by surgical intervention with excision of the wall of the coccygeal epithelial passage. In the postoperative period, the patient is prescribed medication in the form of antibiotics, pain relievers, of course, dressings are made, it is possible to carry out physiotherapy that contributes to the early healing of the wound.

It is quite clear that the removal of the coccyx cyst is carried out most often during remission.However, in some situations it is possible in the exacerbation stage. With a radical method of treatment, in the overwhelming majority of cases, the outcome is favorable. The tailbone cyst after the operation is completely healed and does not give relapses.

Coccyx cyst: operation without complications

There is no single point of view whether surgical treatment is necessary if it is an uncomplicated coccyx cyst. The operation, according to most experts, should still be carried out. There is no need to wait for complications to appear in order to carry out elective surgery.In general, coccyx cyst is a fairly common problem. First of all, the age category of 15-30 years old is susceptible to this disease. In men, a coccyx cyst appears more often than in women.

To avoid complications, the treatment of this group of patients should be carried out in specialized departments, since in them specialists know the peculiarities of the anatomy of this area, the nature of the microbial flora, and the peculiarities of the clinical course of the disease.
