Hi there,

it sounds like you have a persistent cyst and pain. In that case, it is reasonable to consider surgical removal..  It may be reasonable to get a second opinion.

Hello I am no DR but I have heard that cysts sometimes come and go and are nothing to worry about as long as there not cancerous.  Just what I have been told. I too had a CT Scan on the adomen and they found a cyst, too.   Good Luck to you hun...Sorry you are so worried felt like I'd give you something I have heard to maybe calm one of your questions....

Take Care please keep in touch on your progress
