Based from the CT result, presence of polyps or mucus retention cysts are present in the base of the maxillary sinus. Further evaluation may need to be done and additional factors such as symptoms and medical history are important considerations. It is best that you discuss the result with your attending physician for proper diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
So my ent at the time just brushed this all off and said its polyps and sent me on my way. We have moved since then and now my new ent says I don't have polyps I just have a small mucus retention cyst. He isn't going to do anything because its not hurting anything. I have had 3 dr.'s claim they see polyps up my nose, but once I went to this ENT he said I didn't have any and has no clue what they are talking about. Should I be concerned or just dismiss this? Thanks
DID YOUR CT SCAN INCLUDE "CONTRAST?" I JUST HAD CT SCAN
AND WAS TOLD I HAVE POLYPS..BUT ENT DR. SAID THEY
DON'T CAUSE ANY HARM. I HAD SINUS SURGERY FEW YRS AGO, AND WAS NEVER TOLD I HAD POLYPS..THE NEW ENT DR. SAID "THEY GROW BACK"..SO TAKING THEM OUT, RE-THINK IT OVER. IF NOT HURTING YOU...SURGERY COULD BE WORSE THAN KNOW'G U HAVE THEM..I ALSO HAVE MUCOSAL THICKENING ALSO. I CAN ONLY GET MUCUS OUT USING "NEIL-MED, NOT NETI POT..OTC. ..READ INSTRUCTIONS,...NEVER USE TAP WATER.
