There are different kinds of "cysts" but the most common "cyst" in the lumbar spine that causes is a pinched nerve is a synovial cyst. This is and inflammatory cyst that causes symptoms of a pinched nerve. Surgery is sometimes indicated for large, painful cysts that are unresponsive to nonsurgical treatments like PT and injections.

Could the removal of my ovarian dermoid cyst make my weight or wasitline decrease?

Yes

Diet
depends on how big the cyst is, you will find out after it has been removed, but you may need to go on a diet after that, it can make your waistline decrease but prob will not do much to decrease your weight,, the best way to decrease weight is caloric restiction,, AFTER you have recovered from your surgery

Dr. Ryan Taylor answered:

Can an antibiotic decrease the size of an ovarian cyst? If so, what type of cyst is likely to benefit from its use? Thanks.

No

Antibiotic
Ovarian cysts are not typically caused by infections but rather the normal development of an egg in the ovary. Antibiotics would have to effect on this.

50 yrs; uniloculated rt ovarian cyst with no solid components of 10x8cm persisting for a year with no increase/decrease in size. can it be observed?

Observation

Cancer
A simple cyst even above 8 cm has a very low chance of being a cancer. Despite that fact, removal would be recommended because of the chance of it causing pain or torsion. If you do not want it out, that is your decision. You physical health must also be taken into account

Could You tell me how to decrease size of ovarian cyst? Maybe endometrioma. I wanna try everything I can do before having another surgery. Am on pill.

Patience

Ovarian_cysts
Stay on the pill and give it time. If this is a "functional" cyst, it will go away over the course of a couple cycles. Stay on the pill in the meantime - you are doing everything right.

You must go in and be seen now. These are very painful as you know, and the sooner you are on antibiotics the better. It may well also need to be lanced. Please be seen immediately for this.

Had MRI on lumbar spine, tarlov cyst found. Severe lower back and r leg pain. What q should I ask the doctor tomorrow?

Leg pain

Mri
Tarlov cysts a commonly seen on MRIs. They often do not cause pain. Typically there is something else going on that causes pain such as a disc or arthritis pinching a nerve-which is a good question for your doc.
