What does an urachal duct cyst means and how is it cured?

What does an urachal duct cyst means and how is it cured?

Remnant of the past: Long before we are born, we have a connection between our bladder and umbilical cord. It's a tube called the urachal duct. It shrivels away and becomes a tiny empty remnant of a duct as a baby develops and matures. In a few people, part of the duct remains and can have some fluid inside it... Which is called a cyst. The cyst may enlarge over time (sometimes get infected). Surgery removes the cyst. ...Read more

Why do cysts come and go?

Why do cysts come and go?

They leak!: Cysts are invagination of skin --a pocket of skin folded inside out. What normally sloughs off is now collecting in this "sock". It will periodically leak. If it's a *slow* leak, nothing happens and the cyst collapses, and 'goes away'. Then over time, this pocket recollects the content again, and it comes back. ...Read more

See an ENT doctor, dermatologist or a plastic surgeon for removal. ...Read more
