Pilonidal Disease

What is Pilonidal Disease?

A pilonidal cyst (sacrococcygeal fistula) is an abnormal pocket in the skin that usually locates itself above the buttocks near the tailbone. The cyst looks much like a pimple and commonly contains hair and skin debris. If the cyst becomes infected it can result in a really painful abscess that requires clinical attention.

Who is affected?

Though anyone can suffer from a painful, inflamed pilonidal cyst, this condition affects men more commonly than women. Pilonidal cysts are also more prevalent among young adults in their late teens, 20s and 30s.
