We present 5 cases of pilar tumor, and we review the controversy over whether this tumor has a malignant potential. We feel the correct treatment is excision deep to gales, with a one to two cm margin of “normal scalp. Presented with a pathology report of pilar tumor” on a “shelled out” or reputed sebaceous cyst, we feel the correct treatment is complete excision of the previous scar, going deep to the galea and taking a one to two cm margin of surrounding normals scalp.
