Epidermal Cysts

Epidermal Cysts
 
 
  • Epidermoid cysts represent the most typical cutaneous cysts. While they may possibly occur anywhere around the body, normally around the face, top of the head and neck.
  • Until recently, epidermoid cysts were actually known by means of various words, including follicular infundibular cysts, skin cysts, and skin introduction cysts.
  • The definition of skin introduction cyst makes reference specially for an epidermoid cyst be the lead to of the actual implantation associated with skin factors in the skin.
  • The term milia is the term for small, shallow epidermoid cysts.
  • Epidermoid cysts usually are asymptomatic.
  • Less often, the cysts can be inflamed or infected, resulting with pain and tenderness. 
  • Asymptomatic epidermoid cysts don't have to be treated.
