Just wondering if anyone has had a cyst that has not bothered them at all?

I had mine diagnosed last year but only as I found a lump, it doesn't hurt or anything, just wondering as all posts I've read are from people who's cysts have abscesses. Has anyone has one that hasn't?

Thanks :o)

    Hi Debbie,

    That was the beginning for me. :-(

    Here I am sitting in my family room at almost 5 am because I am in so much pain.

    Hope you never have to go through this.

    Pray for me.

    Hi Debbie,

    I documented the progress of my experience with BC. If you have some time, please read my posts. I am happy to hear you are painfree with the cyst as was my experience. Stressed, frustrated? Oh yes. Have a good one.

    Yes, I had one since November 2014 which I got lanced 3 times even though it was not painful (big mistake. Came back each time) eventually I switched doctors and my new doctor refused to lance it unless I was in pain (Thank God), instead she suggested i try some natural remedies.

    Hot sitz bath every single day 2-3 times a day is what I did for 4 weeks and my cyst decreased in size and eventually disappeared. You have to be very patient with these things and in my experience, cutting them etc. will make them come back always.

    I added the following in my bath:

    1 cup regular salt

    1 TBSP Himalayan salt

    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

    7 drops of 100% tea tree oil

    I did this at least 2 times a day for 4 weeks. Patience is the key.
