  • lesion
  • The long-time held belief was that the inclusion of cutaneous ectodermal cells occurred early in embryonic life, and the displaced pluripotent cells developed into a dermoid lesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lesion is a mucous extravasation cyst (mucocele) of the floor of mouth, although a ranula is often larger than other mucoceles (mainly because the overlying mucosa is thicker). (wikipedia.org)
  • The vast majority of cysts expand slowly, and the surrounding bone has time to increase its density around the lesion, which is the body's attempt to isolate the lesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • remove the cyst

  • Small complex left ovarian follicle or cyst. (medhelp.org)
  • But sometimes, instead of breaking open to release the egg, the follicle grows into a cyst that'll go away on its own in a few months. (refinery29.com)
  • Sometimes fluid accumulates inside the follicle, forming a simple (containing only fluid) cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • For the corpus luteum, a dominant ovulating follicle that typically appears as a cyst with circumferentially thickened walls and crenulated inner margins, follow up is not needed if the cyst is less than 3 cm in diameter. (wikipedia.org)
  • Moisture can fill a stretched hair follicle, which helps create a low-oxygen environment that promotes the growth of anaerobic bacteria, often found in pilonidal cysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • epithelial
  • Pseudocysts are similar to cysts (having a sac filled with fluid), but lack an epithelial lining. (wikipedia.org)
  • After a diagnosis has been made, immunohistochemistry may be used to differentiate between epithelial cysts and arachnoid cysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Intra-bony cysts are most common in the jaws, because the mandible and maxilla are the only bones with epithelial components. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, epithelial rests may be the origin for the cyst lining later. (wikipedia.org)
  • I. Cysts of the jaws A. Epithelial-lined cysts 1. (wikipedia.org)
  • A cyst is a pathological epithelial lined cavity that fills with fluid or soft material and usually grows from internal pressure generated by fluid being drawn into the cavity from osmosis (hydrostatic pressure). (wikipedia.org)
  • cyst with respiratory like epithelial lining and the potential for recurrence with characteristics similar to a central variant of low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma There are several development cysts of the head and neck most of which form in the soft tissues rather than the bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are also several cysts, previously thought to arise from epithelial remanents trapped in embryonic lines of fusion, most of which are now believed to be odontogenic in origin or have an unknown cause. (wikipedia.org)
  • small cysts
  • Results: There are multiple low-density liver lesions between 1-2 mm that do not enhance on delayed images consistent with small cysts. (medhelp.org)
  • Most women of reproductive age develop small cysts each month. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • Ovarian cysts are very common and occur in ovulating women. (healthtap.com)
  • Paratubal cyst occur randomly. (healthtap.com)
  • They occur when skin cells and things like hair, sweat glands, oil glands or fatty tissue get trapped in the skin as a baby grows in the womb.Dermoid cysts are present at birth (congenital) and are common. (wikipedia.org)
  • Large cysts that cause problems occur in about 8% of women before menopause. (wikipedia.org)
  • Swelling, especially of the ankle, can occur if the body is not circulating fluid well. (wikipedia.org)
  • This category of cysts takes over areas of necrotic tissue in the brain from injuries, diseases, or abnormalities, which occur due to the central nervous system's nonregenerative nature. (wikipedia.org)
  • An infected thyroglossal duct cyst can occur when it is left untreated for a certain amount of time or simply when a thyroglossal duct cyst hasn't been suspected. (wikipedia.org)
  • The high prevalence of tooth impactions and dental infections that occur in the bones of the jaws is also significant to explain why cysts are more common at these sites. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pilonidal cysts are itchy and are often very painful, and typically occur between the ages of 15 and 35. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • For peritoneal inclusion cysts, which have a crumpled tissue-paper appearance and tend to follow the contour of adjacent organs, follow up is based on clinical history. (wikipedia.org)
  • A cyst is a closed sac, having a distinct membrane and division compared with the nearby tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • CNS cysts are classified into two categories: cysts that originate from non-central nervous system tissue, migrate to, and form on a portion of the CNS, and cysts that originate within central nervous system tissue itself. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed]Thyroglossal cysts are associated with an increased incidence of ectopic thyroid tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Soft tissue swelling occurs, along with airway obstruction and trouble swallowing, due to the rapid enlargement of the cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • germ
  • When totipotential germ cells, which are present at birth, divide or differentiate abnormally though, a dermoid cyst will develop. (steadyhealth.com)
  • Dermoid cysts originate from totipotential germ cells (which are present at birth) that differentiate abnormally, developing characteristics of mature dermal cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • These classification of cysts are embedded in the endoderm (inner layer) and the ectoderm (outer layer) of the cranial or spinal cord germ layers. (wikipedia.org)
  • These cysts can affect all germ layers of the CNS, but are most common in the arachnoid mater, and the ventricular space, which may block CSF pathways. (wikipedia.org)
  • recur
  • And certainly, women who've had endometriosis are prone to having cysts recur - even if you remove them, they can come back," says Dr. Chang. (refinery29.com)
  • surgically
  • When a cyst fails to resolve, it may need to be removed surgically, but that would depend upon its type and location. (wikipedia.org)
  • In more severe cases, the cyst may need to be lanced or treated surgically. (wikipedia.org)
  • The more common course for surgical treatment is for the cyst to be surgically excised (along with pilonidal sinus tracts). (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Transvaginal ultrasonography, which is superior to abdominal ultrasonography in demonstrating evidence of PID, requires the presence of thickened, fluid-filled fallopian tubes to make the diagnosis of PID. (aafp.org)
  • Differential diagnosis are ectopic thyroid, enlarged lymph nodes, dermoid cysts and goiter. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Diagnosis of a thyroglossal duct cyst requires a medical professional, and is usually done by a physical examination. (wikipedia.org)
  • laparotomy
  • If the cyst is very large or the patient is in the late stages of the pregnancy, an open surgery called a laparotomy will need to be performed. (steadyhealth.com)
  • abdomen
  • As the cancer becomes more advanced, it can cause an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. (wikipedia.org)
  • There may be difficulty breathing, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), or dyspepsia (discomfort in the upper abdomen), especially if the cyst becomes large. (wikipedia.org)
  • cerebrospinal fluid
  • A needle is inserted into the spinal canal to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), that envelops the brain and spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • The key diagnostic test (detection of specific auto-antibodies in cerebrospinal fluid) is not routinely offered by most immunology laboratories. (wikipedia.org)
