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

Hi Sir, I'm a 24 year old male facing hairfall problem since 3 years.. I take good diet and even i dont have hereditary hairfall issue, as my dad has very thick hair even at 62. Middle part of my hair got thinner, but worst thing is that I'm losing more hair on the front side and bald patches started to appear. My scalp gets oily by the end of the day and if i dont go for a head bath daily in the morning, i will lose more hair. To regain my hair, i try with hair oil massage every night..but that is when I lose maximum percentage of hair in the day. with this fear, from the past 6 months, i started using herbal shampoo. doesn't observe any difference. Fortunately, i don't have white hair. At this age, i cant afford for hair transplantation, please suggest me any solution by which i can regain my hair.
