Otolaryngology doctor said I had a mu cosal inclusion cyst on my tonsil. He said not to worry about it. He saw them all the time.

I found a non painful and non visible lump the size of about a large pea just above my knee cap in my thigh. Later I realized I developed a streak of numbness from the top of my knee cap climbing about a quarter distance up my thigh. I have a history of ganglion cysts on my wrists.

My Cysts were diagnosed as not a problem, but I was much younger. That was when I was a child, I haven't had it looked at since then. I do know that it is much larger than it was when I was a child and it is also at the point of tenderness to the touch.

I have a cyst above the left eye that just came up from a scar. I received from a rock in the head at 10 years old and now have to talk to a Plastic Surgeon.

I had lots of back pain, and we thought something was wrong with my back, but when I had a CAT scan, they found a mass in my lung. It turned out to be a bronchogenic cyst, the size of an egg. I had surgery at Hospita. Without this surgery I wouldn't have lived.

I had a mammogram done, and they found a cyst. A few months later I had back pain. An MRI was done, and they located a perineural cyst. Prior to finding this out I had never had cysts.

Well I was having a lot of pain in my abdominal area and I went to several Doctors and they ran tests and ultrasounds they couldn't find anything I was having cycles about 3 months straight and I would be so sick around that time, but when I moved to Houston Texas I went to the hospital one night after I got off of work. I was hurting so bad they did a ultrasound on me and they found a cyst on my ovaries and I was hurting very badly.
