Epidermoid Cyst Treatment in Southern California

Epidermal cyst is a slow-growing benign or non-cancerous lump that develops under the skin. This rare cyst is filled with yellowish soft substance called keratin. If the cyst ruptures, the keratin is discharged into the surrounding skin, causing irritation, inflammation fever and neck stiffness. Epidermoid cyst occurs more commonly in adult than in children.
