Dermoid cysts are masses (bumps) commonly found in the region of the nose, eye brow, and scalp of young children. They may grow with age and can cause inflammatory reactions or an infection when they rupture. The permanent treatment involves surgical excision of the cyst in its entirety. Cysts in the region of the nose and eye may have extension to within the skull and sometimes an MRI will be necessary to determine the depth of excision.
