I have a small cyst-like object just above my temple about 0.2 CM in diapreviously as been painless for 10 years, but is now hurting?

Infected cyst: It could be infected now that is why it is hurting. Examination is needed to completely rule out other possibility.
I would suggest you to bring that up to your md so that it can be examined and if treatment is needed, your md can provide it to you. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

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

I have been also experiencing burning sensations in the back of my head. I noticed a small knot as well, maybe a cyst, ? What is this sinusitis?

I have been also experiencing burning sensations in the back of my head. I noticed a small knot as well, maybe a cyst, ? What is this sinusitis?

Probably not: Trauma (blow) to the region would give you a bump. Other causes can include inflammation, tumor (most likely benign), but it does not sound like sinusitis. Consult your pcp. ...Read more

Cysts: Cysts are simply sacs of tissue filled with a substance that makes them expand. There are many types of cysts in the body, but the most common in the area you are talking about is a sebaceous cyst. Most are benign problems but some can cause damage to surrounding structure and some, even more rare, can be neoplasms. Cysts typically cannot be treated at home. Definitive treatment of a cyst requires complete removal of the tissue and, in cases where the growth is more aggressive, some surrounding normal tissue is removed to prevent a recurrence. For these reasons you seek care from a surgeon for evaluation, removal and biopsy. ...Read more

Abscess?: Sounds like there may be a pocket of infection that needs to be properly drained and treated. Normal (not infected) cysts typically don't grow so rapidly or drain so profusely. ...Read more

Would using hair growth treatment on a cyst on your head help to regrow the small amount of hair lost from the cyst?

Would using hair growth treatment on a cyst on your head help to regrow the small amount of hair lost from the cyst?

Perhaps: If the cyst ruptured and healed leaving scar tissue instead of normal scalp tissue I doubt it as the scar tissue will not have hair follicle present to grow new hair. If this is the case, it may need to be cut out (excised) completely and sutured together to leave normal tissue that has hair follicles to grow. ...Read more

My son got small cyst under skin of his head above his left eye, do I need to do scan to find out what it is, I have concerns about it, ?

Dermoid cyst: Usually it is a dermoid cyst, which is not harmful. It can enlarge over time. You can get a scan for a likely diagnosis or can have it cut out or just watch it. Most of my patients chose to have it removed to find out for sure what it is. ...Read more

Had ct of head with and without contrast for HA. Results show small cyst and recommend MRI. Should I be concerned?

Had ct of head with and without contrast for HA. Results show small cyst and recommend MRI. Should I be concerned?

Not without symptoms: If you are not having symptoms, I don't think you even need an MRI. It's just wasting time & money going after an incidental finding. Most brain cysts are benign. If they were expanding, you would have neurologic symptoms (headache, vision probs). What prompted the MRI in the 1st place? Discuss with your primary doc or use HealthTap Prime to get advice from someone who knows your medical history. ...Read more

Pain in epidydimus?: You've had it for over a year so it must be tolerable. You can have a repeat U/S to see if it has grown in size. Go and discuss your situation with a really good pediatric urologist. ...Read more

I ve hip pain from past six months my pelvis MRI reveals a small benign cyst on my right femoral head please advise treatment options?

I ve hip pain from past six months my pelvis MRI reveals a small benign cyst on my right femoral head please advise treatment options?

Depends: If you're worried about cancer, it sounds like its probably not. If the cyst is a synovial pit, it can be associated with femoro-acetabular impingement syndrome which is a cause of hip pain. You should ask your doctor what it was and consider seeing an orthopedic surgeon familiar with this entity. ...Read more

My head MRI showed a small retention cyst in the sphenoid sinus. Headaches and dizziness last week hence the mri. Smoker, sleep apnea from time to time.?

MRI very sensitive: Just because you have something in the sinus, it does not mean it is the cause of your symptoms. Retention cysts are common. Does light or sound bother you when you have the headache? Do you have visual changes before the headache comes? If so you may have migraine. ...Read more

He needs to see a...: Dermatologist. First it needs to be determined if these truly are cysts and, if so, what type. There are some conditions that may seem like cysts but are actually solid masses. Obviously, until a correct diagnosis is made, the treatment isn't likely to work. The doctor should start with a good personal & family history & physical exam, then get a biopsy and microscopic evaluation. Best wishes ...Read more

My 9 mo old has a lump near temple since birth dr finally agreed to order u/s; dr thinks it is a dermoid cyst. Should MRI or CT be done to rule out tumor and cancer?

My 9 mo old has a lump near temple since birth dr finally agreed to order u/s; dr thinks it is a dermoid cyst. Should MRI or CT be done to rule out tumor and cancer?

Follow your heart: A knot present since birth is not going to be a cancer and a dermoid is considered a benign tumor. A MRI or ct are not going to give you more data than you have already. You would get more info from having a piece of the cyst removed and studied. This can sometimes be approached from behind a hairline or through the brow. Your doc can suggest a good cosmetic surgeon. ...Read more

Go to the ER: I would imagine that you have been to the emergency room many times in the past. However, in a situation like this, I would not hesitate to order a CT scan of your head if you presented to my emergency room in order to make sure that you do not have hydrocephalus, which can be life-threatening. ...Read more

A large cyst on top of my head has burst amd is now very painful. It burst internally. Will it just go away?

A large cyst on top of my head has burst amd is now very painful. It burst internally. Will it just go away?

How do you know it: Burst? This could be a sebacous cyst, and if this indeed did burst under the skin, in could become more inflammed, red, swollen and painful. If so, this could require an incision and drainage by a doctor. Your pain is a warning sign something is wrong. Go see a doctor. ...Read more
