Neck cyst surgery

Anyone ever had a cyst removed from there neck? Also

does anyone know the danger of putting off a surgery for

months? My husband had a huge ** baseball sized} cyst

in his neck pressing against his jugular vein. The surgeon

drained it twice and got all the fluid/ puss out of the neck.

He said hubby still needed surgery to remove the cyst.

The problem is my husband is the sole provider of a family

of five. The doctor said he would miss a weeks work due

to the surgery. Now my husband will not have the surgery

until winter ** he is a landscaper & paver installer } so work

is slow enough in the winter to have the surgery. I am

nervous about his decision because he just did not go back

to his last doctor apt. to even ask the dangers of waiting

this long. Anyone know or any advice very welcome.

Thank you, Haylee

Re: Neck cyst surgery

Back in high school, I had a swollen lymph gland that required draining too. It grew very quickly and started pressing on my throat too. After the draining, I was fine, it never came back. Check with his doctor to see if it is okay to hold off on the surgery. He may have to go back to have it drained before then, but that should be okay. You don't want it closing his throat, so be sure to watch it closely.

Re: Neck cyst surgery

Angel, thank you for the reply. It did make me feel better.

I think a call to the doctor is in order. If he wont I will call.

He really seems ok since the draining of the cyst. No pain

and it does not seem to be filling up again. Thanks again

for the reply. Haylee
