synovial cyst - thoracic area

Has anyone had cysts in the thoracic area. I have one that is causing massive pain. Having a nerve block in a week. Wondered if that will help.
Thanks for any info.

Re: synovial cyst - thoracic area

Sorry no one answered your post. Have you had the nerve block by now?

I suppose if the cyst is pressing on a nerve, the steroid may temporarily shrink the tissue enough to provide a bit of relief. But with a fluid-filled cyst, I think it would be a temporary solution.

I believe I read on another of your posts that you have had arachnoid cysts previously??
