Had operation, now cyst on stitch area, should I sue?

Had operation, now cyst on stitch area, should I sue?

Not likely to win: Skin cysts can occur randomly at the site of any surgery and are not usually a sign that the surgeon did something wrong to cause the cyst. Unless the patient has suffered an injury caused by something the surgeon did wrong or failed to do right, a law suit is just a waste of everyone's time. Check with a lawyer, if you want, but get the cyst attended to if it is giving you trouble.

Was told I have a cyst, or a lesion on my right kidney, I been having pains in that area, what should I do?

Kidney: A simple cyst on the kidney is of no concern. A lesion could be any abnormal finding, including a cyst. The important distinction would be if the radiologist called it a mass. Discuss details with your doctor. You can get some blood and urine tests as well. Further imaging like a ct scan can also evaluate for stones and ureteral problems.

I have a 1.8cm hypoechoic area within the left ovary, not a simple cyst. What is that means?

I have a 1.8cm hypoechoic area within the left ovary, not a simple cyst. What is that means?

Likely nothing: Sometimes, after ovulation occurs, the follicle which contained the egg fills with blood and then slowly gets reabsorbed. This finding is likely a resolving hemorrhagic follicular cyst. I would not recommend any followup for this finding unless it was identified because of symptoms (pain?), and only if the symptoms persist.
