Pilar cysts on scalp
Mine is not a question but a comment.  In your discussion about pilar cysts on the scalp..I have had at least 15 removed and have a dozen more right now.  I am 55 and this runs in families.  There is also a connection between these growths and colon polyps. It is called familial adenopathy and I have had 6 to 8 pre cancerous polyps removed from my lower colon as well as many of my family members.  Years ago in the 1970's not much was know about this connection..My maternal grandfather died of colon cancer..He had several cysts on his scalp as well as his two sons and my mother..The age of the start of the growth of these are 20 years old.  My gastroenterologist urges me and my family to get a colonoscopy every two years.


This discussion is related to Multiple Pilar Cyst Syndrome.
