cyst?

I had a cyst removed from inside my peritoneum last week. It has caused a lot of pain. It was originally diagnosed as reactive lymphocytosis. during surgery it was discovered that it had split into 2 cysts (1 large one small). It was free-floating inside the peritoneum but close to the colon. The path reports says "benign mesothelialo cyst. Lymph node with reactive change. no malignancies." What do those things mean? What could have caused it? Will it come back?

Pain in the abdomen is often evaulated with laparoscopy or laparotomy to look for the reason.  A cyst is a hollow sphere.  A lymph node is where your lymph (white blood cells) collects while fighting infection and doing their job.  No malignancies is good since that says there's no cancer.

Only your surgeon can give you more information about the cyst since they'll have pathology results, and be able to give you a prognosis of whether or not your pain will return or the cyst will recur.  Ask your surgeon!
