Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as cysts (female) — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Have you had any cysts other than breast cysts or ovarian cysts? Some cysts can be felt as abnormal lumps under the skin, but others are only detected using X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan or MRI.
Possible responses:→ Never had any / don't know
→ Probably/minor episode now resolved
→ Major episode now resolved (required treatment)
→ Ongoing minor problem (no treatment necessary)
→ Current major problem (requires treatment)
Cysts are very common and rarely turn into cancers, but it is important to make sure. Cysts and tumors are completely different, but as cancerous cells grow out of control to form tumors, they may create spaces between tissues that fill with fluid or other material.
