Re: Large Sinus Polyp
Well, I have 3 cysts (or polyps), one in each maxillary (2.5 cm and 2.8 cm) and 1.1 cm in the sphenoid. Extreme headaches, dizziness, nausea, occipital and dental abscess/pain. The current view is that cysts are incidental and benign, but mucoceles need to be biopsied (not sure about polyps, though apparently they couldn't decide what mine was). As you can see polyps are very common, so I wouldn't worry too much. I do know that you can have them removed, and I am going for a follow up in a few weeks because my dentist says there is nothing else they can do right now and I am exhausted from pain.
I did get ocular migraines also... some shimmering reflection with zig zag distortion, and also sparkler like stuff. A bit scary. I have read that sphenoid cysts can affect vision and in the mornings I have difficulty engaging the muscle of my R eyelid. I also have much worse vision in that eye.
