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

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

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, ?
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

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

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
Doctor said I have a sebaceous cyst on the top right of my head. But I'm having headaches in my right temple and my right eye feels sore at times.
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?
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
