    Post I have a cyst - is this causing my headaches?

    I went to an ENT to find out if my migraines could be sinus-related. He ordered a sinus scan and it turns out I have a cyst in my left cheek. This doctor, unfortunately, is very quick and to the point, and left before I had a chance to ask any questions.

    First, I'm a little nervous - I have a cyst? What does this mean? (A question for a different board, maybe, though.) Could this be causing my severe headaches?

    He also said my adenoids looked weird (maybe enlarged?) and ordered a scan on my neck. Maybe this is causing them?

    hi. don't know if this will help, but an enhanced MRI of my brain showed that i had a cyst one one of my sinuses. i had an ENT doctor look over it, in addition to several neurologists, and they didn't feel it would cause migraines. if you're having sinus headaches, then possibly.

    I had the same thing, it is called a mucous retention cyst. I had mine removed and it made know difference at all. I have had pressure around my left cheekbone for yaers. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the replies. It sounds like the cyst is unrelated to the migraines.

    On to continue my search for my triggers then...
