Pilonidal Sinus or Cyst?

Pilonidal sinus is a small hole or channel in the skin which is filled with pus or inflamed fluid. The fluid may have some blood and the condition occurs in the cleft at the top of the buttocks or the lower back. Pilonidal Sinus or the cyst may also be filled with hair or dirt that may lead to severe pain and foul-smelling discharge. People who have sitting jobs and sit for long hours may be diagnosed with the cyst. It is rather common in men as compared to women. This happens when the hair on the top of the cleft of the buttocks pushes inside the body causing pain and dirt to push inside. It is also called the depression in the skin at the bottom just above the buttocks. Pilonidal sinus in a lot of cases develops from the abscess.

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.
