Cyst In The Sinuses Bloody Nose
Sphenoid sinusitis: Bear in mind that MRI usually exagerrates the findings on the sinuses and we usually need to get a ct scan of the sinuses. However acute sinusitis involving the sphenoid can involve severe headache, eye pain and even changes in your vision. You should see an ENT doctor right away for treatment which can be either with antibiotics and/or surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sinuses are air filled spaces in the head that have several proposed functions: 1. They serve as shock absorbers in cases of head trauma 2. Lighten the skull 3. Humidify and filter the air while also producing mucus 4. Play a role in vocal resonance. The head contains 4 paired sinus cavities: maxillaries (cheek) under the eyes, ethmoids(between the eyes), frontals (above ...Read more
Retention cyst: Hello, cysts are commonly found within the paranasal sinuses. It is believed that they occur from an occlusion of an outflow tract from a mucus secreting gland. This gland continues to produce mucus and before long it swells like a water balloon. These cysts can be varying sizes and as long as they don't occlude the sinus ostea, they are just identified and observed. No surgery is needed. ...Read more
Ct results: minor mucosal changes in the paranasal sinuses seen in the maxillary sinus regions with mucous retention cysts. Possible cause?
Not to worry: I see a fair proportion of my patients demonstrating these in their sinuses as an incidental finding on ct scan. They very rarely require any sort of surgical intervention and should be differentiated from a mucocele (which are different. Allergies, sinusitis, mucosal irritation lead to these fluid filled "sacs". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Runny nose with (nasal congestion), headache, sneezing, sore throat in the morning only. Occasional blood tinged mucous embedded on floor of throat?
Possibly: Asymptomatic cysts and polyps are common in the maxillary sinus and often have no relationship to sinus disease. So an inflamed septum probably has no relationship unless it is so deviated that it presses into the middle meatus which could obstruct the drainage pathway for the maxillary sinus. ...Read more
Clear mucus in left nostril, left side nose pressure and jaw pain, sometimes blood in mucus when blow nose to clear it, is this sinus infection . ?
Nasal cancer or bening? Small amounts of blood tinged mucus in the morning when blowing nose 3 wks. No congestion or runny nose. Minor post nasal drip
Small nasal polyp on bottom of left frontal sinus and polyp in left maxillary floor. Could these polyps cause unusual tastes with increased mucus?
Perhaps but: If these were diagnosed on a ct scan, i would wager that the findings may actually be more consistent with mucus retention cyst or mucosal thickening rather than polyp. See an ENT who can perform an endoscopic evaluation in the office for appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Polyps may cause increased nasal discharge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can chronic dry nasal passages along with sores and scabs inside the nose lead to infection in the bronchial area accompanied by cough?
Ct scan of sinuses showed little mucus in my maxillary sinuses. Frontal looked good. So would allergies cause some pressure in forehead as well?
Many causes.: The most likely causes are simple irritation from dry air, dry mucous rubbing, or other mechanical irritation. If there is a large amount of bleeding, or if it happens every day for a week or more, see your doctor. Things to try in the meantime include humidified air, drinking plenty of water, and abstaining from inserting objects into the nostrils. Very rarely polyps can grow and bleed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a retention cyst in the sphenoid and maxillary sinus cavities be responsible for excess & thickening mucus resulting in the sensation that you constantly have to clear your throat?
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
