Surgery: Very common to have cysts such as mucus retention cysts in the sinuses. If you perform a sinus ct scan on healthy, asymptomatic people about 39% will demonstrate incidental findings such as cysts. When problematic these are drained via endoscopic sinus surgery.

Drainage: Pseudocyts are fluid collections that arise after pancreatic necrosis secondary to acute pancreatitis. Most resolve on their own, but if large, persistent and/or symptomatic, they can usually be drained by nonsurgical endoscopic techniques. Cysts are usually benign but may be cancerous: endoscopic ultrasound and aspiration are sometimes necessary to differentiate the two.
