Pilonidal Cysts Prognosis
Although some patients may experience recurrence of pilonidal disease, in general the long-term prognosis is excellent. In the rare case of squamous cell carcinoma development, prognosis will vary according to different factors and should be discussed with your physician. Mortality (death) from pilonidal disease is extremely rare.
