Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX
Thank you for contacting healthcaremagic
Simple cortical cyst are very common occurring in up to 1 in 3 people. These do not usually cause any problem unless they are very large or occasionally if bleeding occurs into the cyst due to injury in which case some debris may be noted within the cyst on ultrasound.
In your case the cyst is small. Even it causes pain, the treatment will be pain killers only taken for short duration. These do not cause long term pain and you will have to look for other causes of pain like pain from muscles if pain persists.
Hope that answers your query.

Brief Answer:
Not necessary unless continue to have pain

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for your follow up query.

I do not do follow up ultrasounds in a patient with simple cyst of 1.3 cm diameter unless the patient continues to have pain from the cyst which is unlikely in such a small cyst or there was evidence of debris within cyst.

In case you are still not convinced, then have an ultrasound done yearly but this not my usual practice.

Thank you

Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for the follow up query.

Yes. Yoga is good for mind and body and may help the pain if done properly but will not do anything to the cyst. The cyst will remain with you for the rest of your life and please stop worrying about it.

Thank you
