Pilar Cyst

What are pilar cysts? Pilar cysts are flesh-colored bumps that can develop on the surface of the skin. They’re sometimes called trichilemmal cysts or wens. These are benign cysts, meaning they typically aren’t cancerous. Although pilar cysts aren’t necessarily a cause for concern, you may find them uncomfortable. Tips for identification Pilar cysts grow within the surface of your skin. Although pilar cysts occur on the scalp, they can develop anywhere on the body. Other possible sites include the face and neck. Most people end up having more than one pilar cyst at any given time. These types of cysts can range in size. Some can be the size of a quarter, and others can grow to the size of a small ball. This process happens gradually over a long period of time. Pilar cysts are the same color as your skin. They’re also round in shape, sometimes creating a dome-like bump on the surface of your skin. The cysts are usually firm to the touch but smooth in texture. Pilar cysts don’t contain pus, and they shouldn’t be painful to the touch.
