Is it possible for a pilonidal cyst to grow inside, or under the skin as opposed to being outside where it can be seen?

In brief: Absolutely

Pilonidal disease is a nest of hair that is embedded under the skin and leading to infections that become evident on the skin.
The infection under the skin is a necessary component of the disease.
