I had surgery a year ago for a very large retention cyst in my left max. The cyst was so big it was bulging out! The doctor removed the cyst and fixed my septum. I am still experiencing problems in my sinuses such as lots of mucus, ear pain and facial pressure. I just relocated to another state and just went to another ENT. He ordered another CAT scan. I have another cyst where the old one was. This one is only 1 cm big at this time. Although it has only been growing for about 5 months since the last scan. My new ENT said surgery is not necessary at this time and wants to monitor me for a while to see if it grows. Do you think I should have this removed now or go with waiting a year for another scan?
