Types of Pilonidal Sinus

Pilonidal sinus is a type of cyst that you may get at the bottom of your coccyx (tailbone). A pilonidal cyst may be acute or chronic. Chronic cysts can lead to abscesses (infection) and sinus cavities (empty spaces behind the skin). When filled with pus, it becomes infected. The infected form is known as “pilonidal abscess” and it is painful. It is seen more in men than women and occurs at a very young age. In terms of appearances, it looks like a large pimple but it can have different shapes and sizes.

A Pilonidal Cyst or Sinus contains hair, dirt, or debris. It can be extremely painful, especially while sitting. Pilonidal sinus occurs as a result of skin infection and has ingrown hair inside. If not treated at the right time, it can become worse and unmanageable. They are more found in people who keep sitting for long hours.

The 2 categories of pilonidal cysts include acquired and congenital.

  • Acquired cysts occur as the result of ingrown hairs.

  • Congenital pilonidal sinus is a result of a defect at the time of birth. The most common reason why they occur is because of loose hairs pressing into the skin.

    Best Treatment For Pilonidal Cyst 

    The advanced laser-assisted procedure is helpful and effective than any other conventional method. Pilonidal cyst laser treatment uses laser radial fiber to remove the sinus. First things first, the tract is cleaned from any infected tissue. This is done via scooping/cleaning. A laser beam of light is then transferred to ablate the close the wound. The laser fiber destroys the epithelium and sinus tract through the shrinkage effect. The tract is destroyed to a high degree whereas the epithelialized tissue is obliterated in a controlled way. This also aids in the healing process. 

    Unlike traditional surgical methods, laser treatment for pilonidal sinus does not involve any incisions or opening of the sinus tract. It is a minimally invasive procedure with no major cuts, sutures, or blood. This laser surgery is painless and scarless and takes about 30-40 minutes. Since it’s a single-day procedure, you will get discharged the same day comfortably after the treatment.

    Overview

    Pilonidal evolves from the Latin term “pilus” meaning “nest of hairs” which is a small bump in the fold of the buttocks. It results in pain, swelling, redness, pus formation, and bleeding. If not treated at the right time, pus leads to infection. The best treatment for pilonidal cyst is laser surgery. It is preferred since it is a reliable and pain-free procedure. It has been proven to be painless just like with fistula laser treatment. The recovery chances are high in laser-aided pilonidal surgery. The chances of the pilonidal sinus in women are comparatively lower than in young men. People who keep sitting for long periods are at more risk of pilonidal sinus.  

    What is Pilonidal Sinus? 

    A pilonidal sinus is a blister containing hair, skin, and other debris. It originates at the upper buttock region, between the ridge, which divides two cheeks. 

    You can get a pilonidal sinus if hair gets stuck inside the skin. Rubbing the ingrown hair while sitting can irritate your skin and lead to the formation of a cyst. At times, these cysts form an abscess or infection and a pocket of pus is formed. 

    Pilonidal sinuses are common amongst those who sit for long hours like cab drivers, truck drivers, office workers. You may get pilonidal cysts if you have thick, coarse-grown body hair.
