What Is a Pilonidal Cyst?
There’s a type of cyst you can get at the bottom of your tailbone, or coccyx. It’s called a pilonidal cyst, and it can become infected and filled with pus. Once infected, the technical term is “pilonidal abscess,” and it can be painful.
It looks like a large pimple at the bottom of your tailbone. It is more common in men than in women. It usually happens more often in younger people.
People who sit a lot, such as truck drivers, have a higher chance of getting one.
They can be treated. If your cyst becomes a problem, your doctor can drain it or take it out through surgery.
Antibiotics do not heal a pilonidal cyst. But doctors have any number of procedures they can try. Here are some options:
Incision and drainage:This is the preferred method for a first pilonidal cyst. Your doctor makes a cut into the cyst and drains it. He removes any hair follicles and leaves the wound open, packing the space with gauze.
Marsupialization: In this procedure, your doctor makes a cut and drains the cyst, removing pus and any hair that are inside. He’ll sew the edges of the cut to the wound edges to make a pouch.
Incision, drainage, closing of wound: In this technique, the cyst is drained, but it’s not left open.
Other surgical procedures include complete cyst and cyst wall excision along with the pilonidal sinus tracts, the use of fibrin glue, and taking (core out) only diseased tissue and the cyst out with punch biopsies.
What Can I Do to Feel Better?
Early in the infection of a pilonidal cyst, the redness, swelling, and pain may not be too bad. Some things you might want to try:
- - To ease any pain, soak in a tub of warm water. Sometimes, your cyst may open and drain on its own this way.
- - Take nonprescription pain medicine, but follow the dosing instructions.
- - Keep the cyst and area around it clean and dry.
