ethmoid mucocele!

Please give me some info if you have it. I was diagnosed last year with an ethmoid mucocele that pretty much filled up the cavity. The ENT said we would watch it because they grow slowly. The other day I had to have a 3d of my gums for the endodontist and he said the cyst up there looked pretty large, so I sent the disk to my ent. He finally got back to me after three days and his office left a message that he did see thickening of the mococele and he would like me to get a ct scan before I see him Friday after this.

I am really worried. The regular ent doc I went to last year sent me to this guy because he said these type of mucocele take a specialist to deal with - because the bone between the eye and the sinus is really thin.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
