Had a cyst on my bottom. MRSA. Doc gave me doxycycline for 10 days. Cyst drained & doesn't hurt. Finished meds. Is it out of my system? Do I go back?

Had a cyst on my bottom. MRSA. Doc gave me doxycycline for 10 days. Cyst drained & doesn't hurt. Finished meds. Is it out of my system? Do I go back?

No: If an infection has resolved and you have finished the prescribed course of antibiotics, there is usually no reason to return for a follow up exam. Sometimes, the infection (especially if it walls itself off from surrounding tissue forming an abscess) recurs and requires surgical drainage; but this would be apparent because of an increase in swelling and pain. Good luck! ...Read more

What does cystic fibrosis do to the pulmonary system on a cellular level?

Mucus & infection: The cells lining the airways don't put out enough water into the airway to make airway secretions thin enough to be coughed out. The mucus that collects clog the airways and let germs grow and thrive instead of being killed. Long-term infection damages the airways and substance of the lung. The airways and lung units gradually fill up with pus and germs and can't take in oxygen or get rid of co2. ...Read more

2yrs of sciatic pain. MRI shows minor DDD (L3-S1), as well as 2 prominent perineural cysts (S1-3). Are cysts the culprit?

2yrs of sciatic pain. MRI shows minor DDD (L3-S1), as well as 2 prominent perineural cysts (S1-3). Are cysts the culprit?

Unlikely: Perineural cysts are congenital. Rarely, they will enlarge and push on a nerve.

Pinkie finger and ring finger is tingling I had a little cyst like above that bone on my wrist now it is not as prominent. Could that be it

Pinkie finger and ring finger is tingling I had a little cyst like above that bone on my wrist now it is not as prominent. Could that be it

The: The ulnar nerve which supplies the pinkie and ring finger travels into the hand through a channel called guyon's canal. This is separate from the carpal tunnel. A ganglion cyst that develops near guyon's canal can compress the nerve at the level of the wrist and cause tingling. These cysts form on tendons and are pretty common at the wrist. Sometimes they are removed surgically. Other times they spontaneously pop.
It is more common for the ulnar nerve to be compressed at the elbow (funny bone). ...Read more

I was diagnosed after MRI with prominent adenoid pad and tiny mucosal retention cyst in both maxillary sinus. What are my options?

Symptoms?: Why was the MRI done? If you are having nasal obstruction or obstructive sleep apnea, your ENT doc may recommend removal of the adenoids. If no nasal obstruction of concern about the adenoid tissue being a tumor, I would think no treatment necessary.
