The Truth about Pilonidal Cysts

The Truth About Pilonidal Cysts

“What’s that bump on my tailbone that my doctor just called a cyst?  Is it tailbone pain? Is it an infection? Was I born with it? Do I need surgery?”

Well for one thing, if you’ve been told that you have a pilonidal cyst, there is no congenital cyst.  Your tailbone is not directly involved. It is an infection. You were not born with it. If it persists, recurs, frequently causes you symptoms, or limits your activity you might need an operation.

Please be careful in choosing what operation to have and which surgeon to have perform that operation.  Please choose a surgeon with significant experience. Please reference the tips page of www.pilonidalsurgery.com for advice on the type of questions one should ask when discussing the surgical care of pilonidal disease.  And strongly consider traveling to have your operation performed by someone who treats pilonidal disease frequently.
