Observe: Many people have retention cysts...They can cause some discomfort like allergies or sinus pressure..Or they can cause nothing. Treatment is often to have surgery to remove them...Or you can simply observe them as they are not infectious. Chinese medicine can help dissolve them...I suggest you talk to an ENT and a chinese medicine practitioner for more information. ...Read more
