To successfully treat and prevent recurrence of cysts in men we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors. We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow cysts in men to develop?"
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind cysts in men consists of three steps:
|Cancer In General||2%||Ruled out|
|Chronic Infection||2%||Ruled out|
|Tapeworm Infection||1%||Ruled out|
Have you had any cysts? Some 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)
Although cysts rarely turn into cancers, they should be checked to make sure. As tumors grow, they may create pockets in surrounding tissue that fill with fluid or other material.
