Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Operationn for thyroglossal cyst is slightly touchy as even if a small amount of foetal tissue is left there will be recurrence of the cyst.In chennai and Bangalure, APOLLO hospitals are well known for best operations and post-op care. You can try these.

My son who is just 5 years old is suffering from recurrent thyroglossal cyst. He has already undergone two operations of his cyst one at Bokaro and another at CMC Vellore in the year 2009. At the time of 1st operation at Bokaro Steel City, the doctor was quite unaware of the fact that there is a cyst. He had taken the matter very casually and operate the cyst. At the time of operation, he told me that ohho it is a cyst. After that he referred the case of my son at CMC, Vellore. In the month of may, 2009, he underwent a further surgery of his thyroglossal cyst but with no result. Please suggest me that surgery of thyroglossal cyst relates with general surgeon or it requires specialized ENT sugeon. Please also suggest me the important pre-tests required before undergoing surgery of recurrent thyroglossal cyst. Is it curable or not.

Hi doctor, my four year old son has a lump on his penis, it doesn,t have any kind of head on it, but looks as a cyst under the skin would. He is unwell at the moment with cough and cold, also has an infected thyroglossal cyst, which so far has survived 3 courses of antibiotics. Have been advised by g.p. to try and squeeze and clean the neck cyst, to avoid more antibiotics. Do you think the lump in his penis is related to the neck cyst, he is very under the weather.
