Cysts usually occur within almost any type of the body's tissue. They vary in size from microscopic to large structures that can displace internal organs. Cystic swelling can be caused by infections, inherited diseases, chronic inflammation, and blockage in ducts. There are hundreds of different types of cysts. They can grow almost anywhere in the body. Some common type of cyst are epidermoid cyst, sebaceous cyst, ganglion cyst, ovarian cyst, breast cyst, chalazia, pilonidal cyst, baker’s cyst, cystic acne, pilar cyst, mucous cyst, and branchial cleft cyst.


Symptoms

- Pilonidal abscesses usually cause pain and redness that is more noticeable, and the
person may also have a fever.
- Women with ovarian cysts may experience weight gain, breast tenderness, nausea, or vomiting.
