    Mucous retention cyst

    I have been having ear pain and pressure on the left side since last November. My symptoms have increased to include left side headache, and left upper throat soreness, and throbbing. I saw my ENT in January and March for this. At first, he said it was allergies(one sided allerges??); then on the second visit he said TMJ(saw a TMJ specialist--it is not TMJ).
    I had a PET scan last Tuesday. I got a copy of the radiology report and it says I have a left maxillary retention cyst. Obviously the doctor who ordered the PET is not worried about the cyst because they did not call me.
    Along with the cyst I have a low WBC of 2.9, and general feeling of illness. Could this cyst be the cause of my problems, and can these cysts become infected?
    I have to add that I had a PET Scan last August which did not show a cyst in my sinus, so it has grown there recently. Which makessense since I began having symptoms in late Oct./early Nov.
