Please translate: "Mucous retention cyst in right maxillary sinus. Bulbous mucosal thickening of left inferior turbinate is noted. Mucosal retention cyst is also noted within left aspect of nasopharynx."

Antral cyst

Sinus_infections
It is a common condition related to Allergic Rhinitis. In general, no surgical treatment is needed unless the cyst are very large and obstructing the outflow tract of the sinus. The enlarged inferior turbinate is a result of allergy. It can be treated with medication or surgery.

Dr. William Betts answered:

What is extensive opacification of the left sphenoid sinus and polypoid mucosial thickening in maxialary sinuses bilateraly?

Sinus infection

These indicate chronic and repeated sinus infections and should be evaluated by an ENT surgeon. Chronic infections in sinuses can lead to bacteria entering the brain as can infections in upper molars. This can result in brain abscesses and empyemas (very serious.)

Dr. Steven Koos answered:

CT results: minor mucosal changes in the paranasal sinuses seen in the maxillary sinus regions with mucous retention cysts. Possible cause?

Not to worry

Tenderness_over_sinuses
I see a fair proportion of my patients demonstrating these in their sinuses as an incidental finding on CT scan. They very rarely require any sort of surgical intervention and should be differentiated from a mucocele (which are different. Allergies, sinusitis, mucosal irritation lead to these fluid filled "sacs".

Sinusitis

You might have rhinosinusitis which can be acute or chronic due to infection, inflammation or allergies. Symptoms vary but may include stuffy or runny nose, pressure or headache, teeth pain,vertigo, postnasal drip, persistent cough. Follow up with the doctor who ordered the scan to determine treatment options.

The symptoms and the CAT findings correlate. You must have a competent ENT specialist evaluate the possible relationship of these clinical and objective findings. Medical or Surgical intervention may be necessary.

I have ear pressure bcz Hyperpneumatised both frontal and maxillary sinuses.mucosal polyp in both maxillary sinus,nasal septum deviation.surgery need?

Sinusitis

Gastroesophageal_reflux_disease
Surgery is sometimes needed... See a rhinologist (an ENT sub-specialist) to sort out your options. In my practice around 15% of patients with your symptoms ultimately require surgery. Allergy , GERD , aspirin, sub-optimal medical treatment can all be to blame. If significant issues are not treated polyps can rapidly recur. I saw a patient who had undergone 63 surgeries for polyps - aspirin!!!

Is oral augmentin nasoneb,netamethasone vanco+tobramycin realistic treatment for extensive opacification sphenoid sinus/ polypoid mucosial thickening?

Might work

Tobramycin
Not a bad way to start. I find that in cases like yours medical therapy can help in most cases. It sounds as if your ENT is doing the right thing.
