Abstract

Epidermal cyst, a benign tumor, can occur after trauma and surgical interventions such as implanting epidermal keratinized squamous epithelial cells and sebaceous glands into the dermis and subcutaneous tissues. It can occur anywhere in the body. However, penile epidermal cysts are very rare. We present a case of a symptomatic penile mass of a 34-year-old male patient with a ruptured epidermal cyst.
