Tons of Epidermoid Cysts

Terminology

Several synonyms exist for epidermoid cysts, including epidermal cyst, infundibular cyst, keratin cyst and the technically incorrect, epidermal inclusion cyst.[1]:778[2] “Epidermal inclusion cyst” more specifically refers to implantation of epidermal elements into the dermis. The term infundibular cyst refers to the site of origin of the cyst: the infundibular portion of the hair follicle. In fact, the majority of epidermal inclusion cysts originate from the infundibular portion of the hair follicle thus explaining the interchangeable,[3] yet inaccurate, use of these two terms.
Presentation

The epidermoid cyst may have no symptoms, or it may hurt when touched. It can release pus. It is very common for women on the major or minor labia. In contrast to pilar cysts, epidermoid cysts are usually present on parts of the body with relatively little hair.[4]

Occasionally, an epidermoid cyst will present with Trigeminal neuralgia.

Although they are not malignant, there are rare cases of malignant tumors arising from an epidermoid cyst.[5]

  1. I am extremely impressed along with your writing talents and also with
    the format for your blog. Is this a paid subject matter
    or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice high quality
    writing, it is uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one today..

  2. Hi! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 4!

    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!

  3. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging
    on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always exciting to read content from other authors and use a little something from their web sites.

  4. Hello very cool site!! Man .. Excellent .. Wonderful ..
    I’ll bookmark your web site and take the feeds also?

    I’m satisfied to find so many useful information here in the publish, we’d
    like develop more strategies on this regard, thank
    you for sharing. . . . . .

  5. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s
    both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks
    are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this during my
    search for something regarding this.

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any
    tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

  7. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great images or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this
    website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Good blog!

  8. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  9. When someone writes an article he/she keeps the image of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is outstdanding.
    Thanks!
