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.

Mri showed a 3cm polyp in the floor of the left maxillary sinus and a 1cm lipoma in the left frontal sinus. I have eye problems. What does this mean?

Mri showed a 3cm polyp in the floor of the left maxillary sinus and a 1cm lipoma in the left frontal sinus. I  have eye problems. What does this mean?

Probably unrelated: Benign growths confined to the sinuses wouldn't cause eye problems. You may need treatment for the growths, which would be referral to an ENT surgeon who can remove them. Talk to your doctor, the one who ordered the mri. ...Read more

Is a 4mm chiari, small cyst in the diploic in left parietal calvarium, and vascalar flow in the basal condylar veins something to be worried about?

Is a 4mm chiari, small cyst in the diploic in left parietal calvarium,  and vascalar flow in the basal condylar veins something to be worried about?

Probably not: 4mm of tonsilar herniation is not technically a chiari malformation as the cerebellar tonsils need to protrude more than 5mm to be abnormal. The other findings sound like normal variants found on an mri. If you are having symptoms you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Why does fibrosis of the left ventricular posterior wall ( like in cases of muscular dist. )cause a murmur? Where is the murmur coming from?

Why does fibrosis of the left ventricular posterior wall ( like in cases of muscular dist. )cause a murmur? Where is the murmur coming from?

Murmurs from valves: Murmurs are heard when listening to the heart, and are caused by turbulent blood flow through the heart valves. The timing, type and location of the murmur can be used to identify which valve is involved. To further define the problem, an echocardiogram is used to see the blood flow in real time. Fibrosis of the ventricular wall does not cause a murmur, unless it effects the valves. ...Read more

I have a 5mm cyst in midpole of rt kidney posteriorly and 2.5 mm hypodensity in lower pole as well. Asymptomatic. Is there cause for concern?

Probably not: A small kidney cyst is of no concern. The 2.5mm "hypodensity" is likely an additional tiny cyst that is simply too small to diagnose accurately as a cyst on CT. ...Read more

Does a pericallosal lesion in the brain point towards Multiple Sclerosis? I had an MRI and there is a 7mm oval lesion on the left side...thank you

Does a pericallosal lesion in the brain point towards Multiple Sclerosis? I had an MRI and there is a 7mm oval lesion on the left side...thank you

How to address: One lesion does not confirm the diagnosis, as need scattered lesions over brain and/or spinal cord, with both older and newer areas. But if the clinical picture is consistent with MS and you have one lesion, there is an 80% chance of clinical MS within 14 yrs. Recommend repeating films in about 90 days, and maybe obtaining spinal fluid to pin down the situation.. ...Read more

Does a constant twitch in left eye +headache mean possible reoccurrence of brain tumor? I have a history of tumor in right occipital lobe.

Blepharospasm?: The condition that you have with your eyelids is called blepharospasm. Speak to your ophthalmologist about it. I don't think that it's related to your previous condition. You may need to get a follow- up MRI. Try to get copies of your past medical records now before they have been transferred to long term storage. Then scan them and keep them on a thb drive which you can download to any md. ...Read more

Arachnoid cyst w/mass effect on right aspect of medulla in posterior cranial fossa measuring 15x13mm.What probs might it cause if any? Treat or watch?

Arachnoid cyst w/mass effect on right aspect of medulla in posterior cranial fossa measuring 15x13mm.What probs might it cause if any? Treat or watch?

Arachnoid cysts: Arachnoid cysts rarely cause problems. Posterior fossa arachnoid cysts may have headaches and vertigo ascribed to them but it is likely that other problems such as arthritis in the neck or inner ear pathology are the actual cause. Most arachnoid cysts are observed. Creating windows in the cysts to drain to other cerebrospinal fluid pathways or placing a shunt is performed for symptomatic cysts. ...Read more
