What are suggestions for a lump/cyst next to a female's urethra?

Different options: That area has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, tendons and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done. ...Read more

I have just had a cyst removed from my urethra (1.5 weeks ago) Is it normal to still have a small lump and will it go in time, or is it permanent?

I have just had a cyst removed from my urethra (1.5 weeks ago) Is it normal to still have a small lump and will it go in time, or is it permanent?

Unclear for answer..: The specifics of location of the cyst and how its removal was done are unclear enough to deduce right answer. Without further question, I only guess the small lump could be the resolving sutured tissue of the surgical site, which takes more than 4-8 weeks to "completely" resolve; yet, at times, a residual palpable lump may persist forever reflecting the nature of your tissue and the suture used. ...Read more

Get second opinion: It may not be concerning in the sense that its may just be a benign cyst, yet anything that's growing or bothering you deserves to be evaluated. Cysts are typically easy treated by an OB/Gyn by drainage or excision. good luck. ...Read more

I  had  a biopsy half  the  prostate  is  benign  cyst  the  other  half  is  cancer  gleason  9    can  I  have  a pvp  to  open  the  urethra  up ?

Prostate cancer: You could have a pvp or TURP but what treatment are you considering to definitively treat your cancer. High grade aggressive cancer needs aggressive treatment if it is confined to the prostate. Radiation or radical prostatectomy is indicated if your staging workup is negative(ct/bone scan) if this has already spread, hormonal therapy should be started soon good luck. ...Read more
