What is an epidermoid cyst?


Answer by  jking (18)

An epidermoid cyst is a common cyst. They usually occur on the face, or on the upper trunk of the body. A typical epidermoid cyst looks like a small round bump. When squeezed, they may release a pus-like fluid. They usually occur when an oil gland or follicle becomes blocked.

It is a skin cyst. It is layers of skin that are not cancerous. Surgeries can cause this. A body piercing can also affect it.
