Pilonidal Cysts Specialist in Dubai

What is a pilonidal cyst?

A pilonidal cyst is a type of benign lesion that most often develops near the tailbone. If this cyst becomes infected, it can cause significant pain. Cosmocare offers surgical treatment options to patients with pilonidal cysts in the Dubai, UAE. Patients with this condition should contact Cosmocare Piles and Hernia Center, to make an appointment with Dr. Murtaza Pithawala.

What causes a pilonidal cyst?

Pilonidal cysts develop when hair punctures the skin and fails to emerge completely. Loose hairs often puncture the skin after being exposed to friction and pressure from tight clothing or other sources. After the hair punctures the skin, the body reacts to the embedded hair as though it's a foreign substance and builds a cyst around it.

Some people are more likely to develop pilonidal cysts than others. Risk factors for these cysts include sitting for long periods of time, being male, being obese, and having excess body hair. Coarse hair is more likely to cause a cyst than fine hair.

What are the symptoms of an infected pilonidal cyst?

Patients should suspect infection if a pilonidal cyst becomes swollen, painful, and red. Infected cysts may also seep pus or blood. If pus is removed from an infected cyst, it will have a foul smell.

How does Dr. Murtaza remove pilonidal cysts?

Dr. Murtaza offers two different types of surgical treatment for people with infected pilonidal cysts. For people with small cysts, she may numb the area and make a small incision to drain the cyst. For people with large or recurrent cysts, she may perform a more complex surgical procedure to remove the cyst entirely.

Do pilonidal cysts always need to be removed?

Pilonidal cysts don’t always need to be removed. However, if the cyst becomes infected, the patient will experience pain, and treatment is often necessary. Although some patients may choose to have a cyst drained when it becomes infected, pilonidal cysts tend to recur. A large, infected cyst that has recurred should usually be removed. Dr. Murtaza will discuss these options with patients in detail so that they can make the right choice.
