Can a mucous retention cyst in the left maxillary sinus cause headaches, double vision and selling around the eyes?

Most would not: A number of mucus retention cysts are often first diagnosed as asymptomatic findings on panoramic radiographs taken in a dental office.

Cyst: Great question. Maxillary cysts are in the maxillary sinus which is a cavity below your eye and over your lip. A cyst is a benign ballon of mucous in that sinus.

(put 1 teaspoon of table salt or dead sea salt in a glass of water, inhale one teaspoon of this concoction up each nostril each morning and evening for a week or two) will most likely fix this (old ayurveda trick). ...Read more

Discuss at postop: It's difficult to assess your wound from your description alone and it may be best to discuss with your surgeon at the time of your postop examination which i assume should be soon. Other signs to call him/her earlier would be infection or bleeding or drainage. ...Read more
