This question is about my husband. He is 29 and has had a "cyst" in his right temple since he was 21. He says it hasn't changed and it doesn't really hurt but he has had migraines on and off since it appeared. It doesn't move but is somewhat squishy. It feels QUITE large for the location and runs under his brow somewhat. Id say its 2 1/2 CM wide mostly round and protruding half a CM off of his head. you can noticeably see it if you are looking for it.
It appeared when he was 21, He had a lot of dental work in, braces and a bridge between his bottom teeth. He says his wisdom teeth started coming in and it started causing massive pain in his teeth and skull, and migraines and eventually the "cyst" formed. He said he had consistent migraines for days before he forced his dentist to take out the bridge. the pain subsided mostly, but the cyst is still there... and he still has migraines every now and then. (his wisdom teeth came in fine after that and he still has all of them, he changed dentists and new one told him he didnt even need to have them removed)
the BIG issue is that after this incident he had a MAJOR personality shift. He suddenly became very short tempered, intolerant, non-sympathetic/empathetic... and became much more analytical. He also had an increase in depression and has become very egocentric.
My major question is could this mass be much larger than it appears and could actually be pressing on his right frontal lobe. and if that is the case, could it account for his symptoms including his personality change?
if this is the case if we can get it removed might these issues resolve themselves?
I'm going to get him in to see a specialist ASAP but Im looking for other answers now if possible...
Thank you so much for your time,
