Hidrocystoma

What is Hidrocystoma?

Hidrocystoma (also known as cystadenoma, a Moll's gland cyst, and a sudoriferous cyst) is an adenoma of the sweat glands.

Hidrocystomas are cysts of sweat ducts, usually on the eyelids. They are not tumours (a similar sounding lesion called hidroadenoma is a benign tumour).

There are three types of "sweat" glands: True sweat glands or eccrine glands; sebaceous glands, which have an oily secretion around hair follicles; and apocrine glands which have more oily product than eccrine glands and are found on the face, armpit, and groin.
