Re: cyst in hip joint

Two things, a cyst related to osteoarthritis (wear n' tear arthritis) which would be treated by treating the OA and possibly draining the cyst. If the hip degeneration was severe enough, by hip replacement.

Secondly, you said, "its not benign . . ." Not benign means cancer - was that a typo? A bone cyst related to bone cancer is totally different from a little osteoarthritis cyst.

A burst cyst wouldn't cause infection though it could be very painful when it happened - you'd probably pass out. The fluid that isn't immediately absorbed by the body would drain through the lymph canals into your leg. You'd have some swelling for a few days till all the fluid was completely absorbed.

Re: cyst in hip joint

To Evelyn....when the doc told you had a cyst in your hip joint
he meant a cyst that is formed by bone on bone osteoarthritis. This type of cyst is a hole in the femoral head
not a cyst as we think with fluid in it. Bone cysts occur when
two bones rub together since there is no cartliage between
them to absorb the friction. It has been worn out. You need
to find a good orthopedic surgeon and show him your mri.
You probably are eligible for a hip resurface which would
allow you to save the femoral head and just have the head
of it resurfaced and the cyst filled with cement and bone
particles from the sanding of the femoral head. If you catch
this in time and the cysts to do become too big or a lot of them, you can have your hip resurfaced rather than replaced. Karen
