What is a Pilar Cyst?
Cysts that form around hair follicles are known as pilar cysts. They're often found on the scalp. Pilar cysts typically affect middle-aged adults, mostly women. Unlike epidermoid cysts, they run in families. A cyst that forms on the eyelid is called a chalazion or meibomian cyst.
