What is a Pilonidal Sinus?

A pilonidal sinus or cyst is a small hole or channel in the skin that is filled with pus, fluid, skin debris, and sometimes hairs too. It usually forms at the top of the buttock cleft and causes severe pain and a foul bloody discharge. 

Pilonidal sinus often develops in people who sit for prolonged periods throughout the day. It most commonly occurs in men and greatly affects everyday life. So, if you are seeking advanced treatment for pilonidal sinus in Chennai, get in touch with Pristyn Care and undergo laser surgery for a quick and painless solution.

Physical examination for Pilonidal Sinus in chennai


A specialist will diagnose a pilonidal sinus by a physical examination. A pilonidal cyst looks such as a lump, swelling, or abscess at the cleft of the buttocks. It is a draining or bleeding area (sinus). The location of the cyst at the top of the buttocks, and sometimes blood tests may be required for diagnosis. There is no need for imaging tests in cases of pilonidal sinus.


An infected pilonidal sinus can be very uncomfortable and painful. Though non-medical treatment like draining or using home medicines may help, they may not be able to remove the cyst completely. 

Thus, doctors often recommend laser pilonidal sinus surgery. During the surgery, the laser fiber is used to open the cyst and drain it properly. After the cyst is cleaned, the laser is used to ablate the sinus tract during extraction, thereby closing the opening. It is then left to heal naturally as there won’t be any opening left to stitch. 

The entire surgery will be painless and scarless. You won’t require hospitalization and go back home on the same day.

Why is Pilonidal Sinus Treatment Necessary?

Pilonidal sinus is a painful skin condition that cannot be left untreated for a long time as it can have serious repercussions. If proper and timely medical attention is not given, the symptoms can aggravate and make the patients’ life miserable. Not only this, but pilonidal sinus can also result in a number of complications including:

  • The cyst on the buttocks is prone to microbial attack. When this happens, the cyst can get infected and over time, turn into an abscess. 
  • The infection present in the cyst can travel to other parts of the body as well. In severe cases, the infection may travel through the bloodstream and cause systemic infection or sepsis.
  • Pilonidal sinus is known to increase the risk of a type of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Pilonidal sinus can even result in anal fistula in a very rare and serious case. Anal fistula is an infected passage that forms between the anus and the skin located around the anus and the rectum. Such a complicated condition in which the pilonidal sinus causes fistula is called as pilonidal fistula-in-ano. One of the recent studies reflect that only 6 such cases have been reported till now.

As it may be clear, pilonidal sinus can turn quite serious and therefore, timely medical care becomes necessary. So, it is better to get in touch with a doctor as soon as the initial symptoms of pilonidal sinus start to show.
