I had maxillary surgery to remove a cyst 3 months ago now! how long should my gum be numb for and pins and needles in the face along with runny nose?

Depends: No one answer for everyone, but in general, sensory nerves can take anywhere from 3mos to a year to recover after surgery.

I itched a old cyst on the bridge of my nose and now I have this weird pressure in my nose on that side and it's a little red. Did it rupture?

Nasal cyst: It is certainly possible that your cyst ruptured. From the outside of the nose to the inside on the bridge of the nose is not very thick, however, there are several layers you would have to get through including a layer of muscle and bone and the inner lining tissue, called mucosa. If you ruptured a cyst in the skin, it could cause swelling in that area that could be felt inside the nose ...Read more

Door hit nose last wk. Phys ast. Said wasn't broken. Noticed small bump where i was hit- touched it & it made popping noise. No pain. What is it?

Nose: It is hard to say without seeing it. It could be a hairline fracture that was not seen on initial exam or you could have fractured cartilage that is harder to detect. I would recommend further evaluation. ...Read more

I drained an epidermoid cyst in vaginal area with a needle when it got infected. It left a small hole that hasn't healed after 6 months. What do I do?

Sounds like : You still have cyst lining remaining. If the hole bothers you, have a surgeon remove it. But it will likely leave a scar after removal too. ...Read more
