Cyst

Read in Hindi

Cyst is a sac that is filled with air, fluid and other substances. It can appear either on the skin or deep inside the body organs. It can develop due to parasitic infection, obstruction of sebaceous glands (oil glands) or due to chronic inflammation.

Mostly, cysts are non-malignant. So, they do not cause chronic problem and fade away on their own.

However, some cysts such as keratocysts and dermoid cysts can be potentially malignant.
