Cause #2: Family History

It has been observed that a pilonidal cyst tends to occur in those who have positive family history. For those with a positive family history, it may help to reduce the risk if they try to look at what other risk factors affect the family and themselves.

A pilonidal cyst may tend to occur in the family due to family members being overweight, being too hairy, or having sedentary lifestyles. Patients with these additional risk factors can try to change their lifestyles to reduce the likelihood of having a pilonidal cyst.
