Fibrous cyst

What is Fibrous cyst?

A cyst is a closed sac, having a distinct membrane and division compared to the nearby tissue. Hence, it is a cluster of cells that have grouped together to form a sac (not unlike the manner in which water molecules group together, forming a bubble); however, the distinguishing aspect of a cyst is that the cells forming the "shell" of such a sac are distinctly abnormal (in both appearance and behaviour) when compared to all surrounding cells for that given location. It may contain air, fluids, or semi-solid material. A collection of pus is called an abscess, not a cyst. Once formed, a cyst may sometimes resolve on its own. When a cyst fails to resolve it may need to be removed by surgery but this will depend on what type of cyst it is and where in the body it has formed.

Here goes, I had laminectomy , foramenotomy and removal of a fibrous cyst . Before this surgery, and a period over 10+years I have been very allergic to ADHESIVES. ALL ADHESIVES!! So imagine my surprise to 24 hours after surgery my back is deep dark red that burns so intense, then a few days later I broke out head to toe with welts, hives and an itching, burning rash . All the P.A said was wow, you really are allergic to that adhesive! . Really? Because I have this problem of itching and burning skin 4 weeks post op, no other choice to seek legal help. Even the hospital discharge says allergic to ADHESIVES and tape.
so these are you know
you can reduce them in 4=6 wk by antiallergics
no option in surgery without many adhesive materials
take ot of warm water
rake alegra 120 mg bd for 4 wk
apply steroids creams locally
it will take 4 wk

I am a 66-year old woman. About 15 years ago a surgeon tried to remove what he referred to as a fibrous cyst on the back of my neck to the right side of the cervical spine. He became frustrated during surgery because parts of the cyst were intertwined with other tissues and he did not have time to mess around removing them all. So he stitched me up and said he could not get it all. He said it would probably grow back but it was nothing to worry about. Well, it has grown back and now it is causing pain wen I turn my head. What kind of a surgeon should I call to attempt to have it removed? As far as I can tell, the cyst is about 2-incdhes in diameter and protrudes out about 2 centimeters. XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query. I understand your concern with the cervical cyst which is causing pain now due to regrowth even after surgery and removal. What i suggest you would be to XXXXXXX a head and neck surgeon (Many of the ENT specialists are trained in head and neck surgery). They...
