Navicular Bone Cyst
Had curettage of bone cyst (s) in tarsal navicular a week ago. How exactly was the bone opened and cyst taken and scraped out? Curious...
Talk to your surgeon: Depending on the size and which part of the bone had the cyst the procedure will vary. ...Read more
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
Different: A bone spur is an area of bone growth where a muscle, tendon, or ligament inserts. This attachment is called an enthesis. A bone cyst is a cyst within the substance of the bone and, as such, contains fluid. ...Read more

Rarely: They usually occur in people under age 20. While not impossible, it would be rare. See an orthopaedic surgeon, preferably an orthopaedic oncologist (an orthopaedist trained in treating bone-joint-muscle tumors, both benign and malignant). Others can do tests (mri, ct for example), but if someone suggests biopsy, the orthopaedic oncologist is the person to see. ...Read more
If you had a bone cyst near a growth plate, would you notice if it grew into and damages the growth plate? (ie would you have any symptoms?)
Probably not: If it affected the growth plate the redultant deformity would occur so slowly that you may not notice-I would highly recommend that you follow up with your orthopedist with exam and x-rays as frequently as he recommends. ...Read more
Benign bone tumor: An aneurysmal bone cyst is a benign condition of the bones, commonly in a child which can lead to fractures. The cyst area often expands and weakens the bone, making it prone to fracture. The fracture typically heals, but the condition may persist and fracture may occur again, sometimes necessitating surgery. The humerus bone near the shoulder is a common location for this. ...Read more
Surgery: Bone cysts do not always need treatmen, however if large as we sometimes see in the heel bone, they may cause fracture, traditionally the have been surgically cleaned out and packed with bone graft. Ther have been a few reports in the literature of endoscopic clean out and grafting. ...Read more
It depends upon:
The size of the cyst, location and etiology.
If it is small cyst in a joint due to arthritis or a large cyst due to benign tumor makes a difference also which bone and where in the bone it is located all this iformation will help your doctor to recommed the best way to deal with your cyst. Surgery to take ot the cyst and bone graft to fill the cyst or injection of the cyst are some of the options ...Read more
No: Bone cysts are benign and do not spread. ...Read more
ABC: Aneurysmal bone cysts treated surgically heal in approximately 6 weeks--depending on the personality and location and size of the cyst. If it is fractured/displaced it may take somewhat longer. ...Read more
Is there a chance of bone cyst spreading in other parts of the body, if it is present in some bone already?
No: This, however is true only if it is indeed a simple bone cyst. Other types of bone lesions that may be similar in appearance but are not true bone cysts might in some instances spread. ...Read more
Its a defect in bone: The hip joint is made of two parts. The head of the femur (thigh bone) fits into the cup or socket of the acetabulum (pelvis). If there is an injury of the hip from trauma or arthritis, you can get resorption of bone on either side of the joint. The area of resorption fills with fluid and creates a defect or cyst in the bone. ...Read more
Except if it is very large and in a vulnerable area like the neck of the femur which coild result in a fracture through the cyst
treated successfully by injecting the cyst with cortisone or other bone forming substances
rarely needs a bone graft. ...Read more
Bone cyst on X-ray: If the "bone cyst" is in the same location as the site of your previous allograft, then the x-ray is probably showing the allograft and not a bone cyst. ...Read more

Varies: This would depend on exactly what the cyst or bone lesion is, as well as how large is the cyst. Some are left alone, some need surgery for curretage and grafting (scraping out the cyst material and filling it with bone or cement), and some if the lesion is a bad one can require more aggressive and extensive removal of the lesion and possibly surrounding tissue as well. ...Read more

Can a bone cyst hurt? Was told I had one in tibia when I was young. Having some non-weight bearing very intermittent pain in the area.
Not clear: Find out regarding pregnancy with a home pregnancy test. Otherwise, a "bump" can be a symptom of many diagnoses. It depends on your personal medical and surgical history, body habitus, history of previous trauma, etc. Your best bet would be to see a qualified general surgeon, for a detailed history and physical exam. ...Read more

I broke my finger and have either an abc or unicameral bone cyst, how long will it take for my finger to heal?
A UBC or ABC if: You are as stated 32 years old in a finger one should seek out a hand surgeon to discuss this as there are other benign things that can be present. Healing of a lesion in a finger bone depends upon the fracture, if there is any displacement, or need for surgical fixation and what the true cause may be. Please seek out a hand surgeon with experience in these matters ...Read more
I have a intracessous lunate bone cyst that is growing. It was found six months ago after my wrist would not stop hurting. What happens next?
Get checked by Ortho: Any cyst that is growing and causing pain in the bone requires consultation with an Orthopedic surgeon. Some such cysts turn out to be giant cell tumor of the bone and may need surgical intervention. Most are treatable provided they are not too big...so get it checked while it is still small (? what size/dimensions is this cyst??). ...Read more
I have a chronic avulsion fx of tarsal navicular and associated cyst in the bone and dr won't do anything. Is there truly nothing to do for this?
Navicular Fracture: I assume this is painful and interferes with your life. My best advice is to seek another opinion of a Podiatrist that has a good reputation. The cyst may need to be packed with bone and the fracture fragment (I assume that is what you mean by chronic avulsion fracture) may need to be removed. Second opinion! ...Read more
Sometimes: The issue is usualy being sure it is a bone cyst and not something more sinister- so imaging is one way to help decide this- sometimes a simple xray picture suffices, sometimes a ct or mr scan or bone scan is needed. Sometimes there is enough uncertainty that a biopsy of the area is needed- often with just a needle. ...Read more
I have an aneurysmal bone cyst in my palate (very rare!). Is the blood inside it fresh or stagnant? Would vasodilating substances cause it to grow?

Got an xray of my elbow. Might be fractured. F/u in a week. Dr called, said I have a bone cyst. Should I be worried? What should I do?
Repeat X-ray: Bone cysts are usually of no concern. But they do create a "weak spot" which can fracture. The reason for the repeat xray is because elbow fractures can be very subtle. They become more obvious after 7-10 days. If there is high suspicion for fxr, or fluid in the joint, then repeat xrays are needed. ...Read more
Painless oval lump above right knee. Firm and doesn't seem to move. No discomfort or recent injury. Near former unicameral bone cyst.?
More information ndd: You probably have an idea whether it's in the skin layer or deeper. It sounds deeper than the skin (doesn't move). Since firm, it's prob. Not a benign fat tumor (lipoma). In that case it suggests either a cyst (fluid-filled) or a fibroma (think of as overgrowth of scar tissue), both also benign. However this is something you may want to have your doctor, NP or PA look at sometime. ...Read more
