Lump In Sinus Cavity
I have glaucoma in my left eye and a large maxillary sinus cyst in my left sinus cavity. Could the cyst have caused the glaucoma?
No: It is a coincidence that they are on the same side. The cyst is isolated within the sinus separated by a bony interface. Even if the cyst were contacting the eye, the pressures would equalize and the cyst would advertise itself by protruding the eye - a quite different problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CYSTS IN MAXILLARY SINUSES, RIGHT LARGER THAN LEFT OPACIFICATION OF MASTOID AIRCELLS PUNCTURE HIGH SIGNAL AREA SUBCORTICAL WHITE MATTER NASAL SEPTU?
Reason for MRI?: If this was supposed to be an MRI of the brain then, the read of the sinuses is a common "red herring" that radiologists always tend to comment on but rarely do the comments make it into the annals of CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE nor do they ever have to do with the initial reason for which the scan was obtained. Bottom line is probably of no importance. But check with your doctor or neurologist. ...Read more

Pain in left maxillary area which show inflamed maxillary mucosal sinus, but I have a dry mouth and throat on my left side that is painful?
Inflammation?: I'm assuming there was a CT done that reported an inflamed sinus cavity. If you have an infection affecting the throat (be it viral, bacterial or otherwise) it is possible the infection involves the sinus. It is more likely, however, that the immune response has "drifted" to the sinus and that there is, in fact, no sinus infection. A physician's examination is needed for treatment decisions. ...Read more
