Dermoid Cyst Definition and Symptoms

A dermoid cyst is an abnormal growth anywhere in or on the body that is made up of skin, hair follicles, and sebaceous glands. These cysts are caused when skin and skin structures become trapped during fetal development. The only symptom is the presence of the cyst itself. Removal is usually not necessary, unless for cosmetic reasons.
