Introduction: Swellings of pinna are common but various cystic lesions encountered in clinical practice are not reported too often. Management of these lesions if not done at the earliest may lead to disfigurement and change the entire appearance of the face. Aim and Objective: The aim and objective of the study was to determine the clinical presentation, relevant investigations, appropriate treatment, timing of surgical intervention, and prevention of complications. Materials and Methods: Our study comprised 38 cases; male and female patients presented with different types of pinna swellings. Results: A total number of pseudocyst patients were 30 and of which only four were females. Recurrence seen in pseudocyst was 13.33%. Complete resolution was seen after excision in all cases of dermoid and sebaceous cyst. Conclusions: Aspiration and drainage followed by splinting is a simple, safe, and effective surgical treatment of pseudocyst. Simple excision is the most effective surgical treatment of dermoid cyst and sebaceous cyst.
