A. it's a pretty common surgery from what i remember. most of our family has any kind of nasal problem...sinusitis..adenoids...just name it. the surgery is entering through the mouth (under full sedation) and lasering/curetting - removed. it took about a week to recover , eating soft foods..and it worked!

Q. I am 30 years old I was diagonised with cyst last decDoctor said the cause behind that is food. is it curable. im my first mri 6 spots were visible and in 2nd one only one was visible and in 3rd one nothing is visible. should i continue taking medicines.

A. geetadevi - there's about a million types of cysts , all over the body. a cyst is just a name of how can a pathogen show up. so you'll have to give more info then that. and anyway- stopping medication is A DOCTOR'S CALL! not other patients (who are very nice and want to help in any way they can :) ) call.
