What treatment should I take to get relief from reoccurrence of cyst on the leg ?

my mom suffers from a cyst in her leg. she operates it herself and a straw coloured viscous fluid comes out mixed with blood . it rests for few weeks and the cyst again shows up, what do u think about this. she is 60 years of age and the problem is ~ 30 yrs old. many operations and tests have occured. a plastic surgeon had once washed with saline after a small surgery and it was gone for years. it showed back when had a repeatitive shear on that place due to a particular sandal. can u suggest something?

Hi, Panchali,
Your mother has cyst on the leg, it may be sebescious cyst or callosity in the leg.
Never try to disturb it by doing self operation ! there is chance of tetanus,infection etc.
If it is in connection with the joint it may be arthritis or synovitis.
Consult surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
ok and bye.

I am 39 and I have cysts on my ovaries. I have had them before sometimes they pop . In the beginning of November 2013 I had one on each ovary 2cm. In December I had my appendix out and they were 4 cm. my dr tried telling me maybe I have just had issues with my appendix for the past 5 years and that caused my pain. I have went to the dr and er for the pain. They have always seen cysts on my ovaries. My dr told me to loose 10-15 lbs and they should go away. Well it did not happen. I have tried metformin, birth control pills and did not work. Metformin dropped my blood sugar levels to much. I have very bad vericous veins in my legs and was told don t take birth control. He want me to put a meraina iud in. I don t know what to do. I canceled my appointment with him a few months ago because I don t need a dr to tell me I get cysts because I am fat. I don t have normal periods. I will bleed for a few weeks that nothing for months. Lately I have been spotting and bleeding after sex. I have been getting hot flashes a lot the past few months. I have been having more pain lately. What should I do?

I had a cyst on my back and it was drained (about 2 months ago) it has become inflamed again and painful.. I have cephalexin should I start taking it because I cannot get to see a Dr until Monday and I also was wondering if I should see my regular physician or a surgeon or dermatologist. It is the size of about a nickel and raised of the skin... The Dr that cut it open and drained it was an urgent care physician. Thank you for you thoughts and comments

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
