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

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.

27 years old, frm last 5 years I have sever pain in whole my left body side, from head to foot.I have bilateral maxillary retention cysts in both sinus?

Unrelated probably: Generalized severe pain on one side of the body would be unrelated to bilateral maxillary retention cysts. However, if the "cysts" are not true retention cysts and another pathological process, they could be related. See an ENT doc to help correlate. ...Read more

Head ache: Mucous retention cyst will not cause those symptoms and it is likely an incidental finding unrelated to your headache. Since we don't know anything about you, not even something as basic as your age, let alone your medical history and meds, we cant offer you relevant and useful response especially when there is not a real question posed. ...Read more

MRI very sensitive: Just because you have something in the sinus, it does not mean it is the cause of your symptoms. Retention cysts are common. Does light or sound bother you when you have the headache? Do you have visual changes before the headache comes? If so you may have migraine. ...Read more
