Is it necessary to get a urethral cyst removed if it does not cause any symptoms?

Is it necessary to get a urethral cyst removed if it does not cause any symptoms?

No: Treatment of urethral cysts depends on location and if they are causing symptoms. If the cysts are around or near the urethral meatus and not causing discomfort or interfering with voiding then they generally do not need to be treated. A urethral diverticulum is not a true cyst but a weak point in the urethra wall which may need treatment if it contributes to infection. Get your doctor's advice ...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

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

My question is about my urethral meatus cyst, I have this aince birth, I don't feel any symptoms, pain or hard time in peeing, does it need a operatio?

Has a doctor advised: ...you to do so? If the cyst is small and not causing any problems so far, it might be best to leave it alone. While surgery is a precise, planned "injury", it is an injury nonetheless and could cause infection, scar tissue or other problems. Your situation may change in the future. If so, you & your doctor may need to reconsider surgery. My best to you. Dr. Anne. ...Read more
