Pilonidal cysts – an unknown discomfort


In most cases, pilonidal cysts (by physicians also referred to as sinus pilonidalis) appear between the age of 20 and 30. Estimates assume that in Germany alone, 26 out of 100,000 people develop pilonidal cysts every year. Men are affected about two to three times more often than women.
