Hemorrhagic Cyst
I was recently diagnosed w/ having a hemorrhagic cyst on my Thyroid. My dr. hasn't given me a whole lot of answers thus far. I'm just wondering how/why this happens, and if it is potentially dangerous. Is there any way it could've been prevented? I'm curious as to how it came to be and why it's there and if it requires surgery.

This happen after the blood vessel ruptures inside the gland; sometimes follows injury to the neck.
The similar result can happen if small solid nodule undergoes cystic degeneration.
The cysts are aspirated after internal bleeding subsides, however the cyst may refill. In some cases PEI treatment can be attempted.
