Well, went to the ER a few days ago over a swollen stomach, sides pains, and difficulty breathing. Got an abnormal Xray back and had to get a CT scan done. Those are not fun. They pump you full of iodine and contrast which makes you feel like you're standing next to a blazing fire. Anyway, turns out I have a huge 10cm cyst on my left kidney that'll be getting drained in a couple weeks. Its pretty gross, but just glad it didn't turn out to be a tumor. Anyone else have a cyst before? I'm only 23 so its pretty unsual at my age for one to get that big. Though from what the doc told me, 50% of the population has them, they usually just dont get this big.

i've had one on my arm for awhile. it's not really a big deal. one of the hamsters i used to have had some ridiculously large cysts though. if i had pictures, i'd post them.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Got a swollen lymph node in my neck. Not visible at all, I found out that I had it by touch.

It's normal, apparantly. I thought I had cancer or something.
#7
I had one in the worst possible place on my nostril. It used to be about 2cm in size, and was very noticeable. It pissed me off to no end, and bled if I touched it. I remember accidentally ripping it out one night after school... worst. Pain. I've ever felt. In my life. It bled non-stop for an hour, but I felt good knowing it was gone. By the next month, I realized it wasn't actually gone, but that I had ripped enough off that it was now unnoticeable nor painful.

I've probably got others, but at least they're where no-one can see them.

I had one right on my asshole a few years back. Puss would come out when I wiped my ass.
#11
I have no ides whether they are cysts or what, but I've always had very lumpy forearms for some reason. Don't notice them until the light catches them right.
#13
I used to get them behind the ear.

My asshole doctor decided to cut one open and prod around without giving me an anesthetic.
Then he told me to just pop them on my own when the show up.
#14
I used to have one about 1 cm big on the middle tendon of my left hand, and it moved along as I moved my middle finger...
But never had any trouble with it, went away after a year or so. Apparently you're not so fortunate...

Cystematically speaking, I have never had a cyst no.

My sister had some on her ovaries, her tubes got twisted and the cyst grew to the size of a grapefruit. Had to get operated on and everything. Looked like it was the most painful thing ever.

I have one on my left wrist. It makes it hard to play barred chords sometimes, and it made it so I had to quit playing drums. The doctor told me that there was a decent chance of them screwing up my nerves in my wrist if they tried to remove it, so I decided to just live with it. I've had it since I was about 12, so it's been there for about 6 years now. I just had to learn to deal with it.

You didn't like that? I loved that feeling lol....it was so unusual that it was awesome.

I had one on my face and when I went to the dermatologist to bust it they were like "Oh yessss there we gooooo" when they popped it. I was like wtf
#24
I have some sort of cyst on the back of my head on the right side. I've never asked the doctor about it, because I've had it as long as I can remember and it doesn't give me any problems.

The below is a true story and is NSFW. Reader discretion is advised.

Also, this is not copypasta.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hmm... did I have a cyst?

FUCK YES I HAD A CYST. AND IT WAS IN A VERY BAD PLACE.

Yes, that place.

I'm still recovering from it.

Over a month later.

If you want the whole story, well... Over the summer my doctor found a lump in *that place.* She initially thought it was a tumor, much like in your case, but upon further examination is was essentially a bag filled with fluid, and it was still filling up. It's considered a hernia because there's an opening in the abdominal wall and such, so it required surgery, which is more complicated than a simple aspiration (draining). They had to go in, sew the hole, and drain the fluid through an inch incision in my hip area. All in all the surgery would take about 20 minutes, and it was a fairly common procedure. Regardless, I was scared shitless at the thought of being cut open.

Oh, but that was the least of my worries as I soon found out.

After the surgery I'm riding in the car and I can feel the *place* filling up with fluid and inflating. Guess what? It just so happens that fluid was fucking blood, which would later be my sworn enemy. By the time I got home the *place* was about the size of a frigging grapefruit if not larger. I was so swollen I couldn't walk, and getting up was painful. The incision hurt a lot, but the drugs they gave me made me care. It's weird how it works. What concerned me most was... well... How the fuck am I supposed to go to the bathroom? I was holding it in all day and feared the worst so I didn't even bother.

The drugs essentially left me sleepless. I laid on the couch just staring at the ceiling all night, and eventually I just had to go.

People, it was ugly.

Black and Blue. All over.

I went, but I needed a bucket.

This was hard on me, but I got used to it over the next day. But the thing was, this was supposed to be a 2-day recovery, and then I would be back in school. This thing didn't show any signs of deflating, and I was getting worried. On top of that I was getting headaches and fevers and nausea and just shit you don't ever want happening to you after a surgery.

About 5 days in I was getting really worried. The swelling went down a bit, but at the rate it was going, it would be another 3 months before it would be normal again. Also my fever peaked 102, so something was obviously wrong. It was a saturday and my surgeon was out, so common sense told us to go to the emergency room.

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH EMERGENCY ROOM DOCTORS?

I had at least 10 residents examining me and nobody knew what the hell was up with my junk *that place.* It was like they never saw this before, and I don't think they have. They had to give me an IV because I was dehydrated, and I'm afraid of needles so this was just... a waste of a prick (all they gave me was water). They then sent me to get a sonogram.

They thought the testicle was dead (**** that happy place bullshit, I'm just going to be blunt). They thought I would need yet another surgery. They wound up prescribing me antibiotics and percocet (fucking oxycontin).

Well, they were wrong in doing and saying these things.

My parents called up my surgeon the next day and he was pissed. He's a specialist, whereas ER doctors are general doctors, so to be blunt nobody knew what the hell they were doing but him and his associates. Not only were they not supposed to take any sonogram that early after surgery, he said the results didn't mean anything because it was supposed to fill up with blood and they weren't supposed to see anything. This was good news. No dead testicle. But I was still swollen as shit.

All while this was happening my legs were absorbing the fluid and turning all kinds of nasty colors (yellow), and it was painful to walk. Everything felt heavy down there, and I could barely breathe.

All is the same for a while until about two weeks in.

Then my balls started bleeding.

You read that right. My balls were bleeding. Just bleeding. There was no sign of a cut, it was some kind of osmosis bullshit that was happening.

We go in to see the surgeon. He says its a normal part of the progression.

A few days later the bleeding stops.

Another few days later these pimply things form and start bleeding all over again. These were ulcers. THEY STUNG LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER. Even just sitting was painful, there was nothing I could do to escape the pain. More and more of them keep forming.

One day I tried squeezing one. A worm came out. Well, it was more or less the blood clot itself, but it looked like a worm. This of course got rid of the blood slowly, but it hurt like a bitch so I stopped doing it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, do you see that line there? I put that there because all of that was the prelude to the actual problem. The real story starts here, bitches.

I wake up one morning and go to the bathroom. What do I see but a sea anemone on my balls, because what else? The pain was gone, but this is not something you want to see in your happy place.

Of course I call my surgeon. What am I, stupid?

So I get to his office. He looks at this thing. He tries to act cool but I can tell in his eyes that he's never seen this. He's able to rationalize it, but I can tell there's some shock. This is a guy that's been in the profession for a while. He told me that it would get bigger and join the other pimply things.

He was right.

2 inches in diameter, this thing grew. Out of a fucking hole the same size in my scrotum. It didn't just look like a hole, this was actually a hole. If I tugged it I would be looking inside my balls. It didn't hurt (of course not), but as with most medical things with me, the pain is immaterial and it's the thought that I have a 2 inch open wound just sort of there.

Now comes the real scare.

I know, I'm using too many cheesy transitions.

An olive thing popped out from under the sea anemone. Me and my curiosity caused me to think what this thing could be. "What is small and round and belongs in my scrotum?"

"HMM, MAYBE A TESTICLE?"

SO I RUSH TO THE HOSPITAL FOR ABOUT THE 15TH TIME BECAUSE I THINK MY TESTICLE IS COMING OUT OF A HOLE IN MY SCROTUM AND THAT IS BAD. Fortunately it wasn't. Unfortunately, they said they had to cut the thing off.

Right in front of me. No anesthesia.

Again, it didn't hurt, but - oh fuck it all, do I even have to reason this one out?

When it was done, it looked like a half-eaten sausage. I swear to god.

Now we come to today. It's almost gone, but it's still there. I've been out of school since September, almost a summer's worth. I'm going back monday, but really? A two-day recovery turns out to be a 1.5-month recovery?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So yeah, run for your life I guess.

I just spent a half-hour writing about my balls. Might as well put it on cracked or something.

I have two epidermal cysts on my back, not painful at all, not dangerous, but they won't go away, so I'm having them cut out in a week or so.
#30
Not that I know of.. I have an osteoid osteoma in my shin though. Which is getting removed soon [hopefully :/]. Pisses me off.
#31
Yes on the back of my foot, they thought it was a bone spur so went into surgery thinking they would be cutting my achilles tendon and crap, healing hurt really bad. It's back in the same spot but doesn't bother me like it did before so I ignore it.
sunbather is shit

Sebaceous cysts are common for me. I pop them before they can become unpoppable.

An internal cyst of that size is crazy though.

What place can a testicle come out of?


It was my nose.

Also I should point out that a simple draining probably won't cause anything like that, and my case was unheard of, so there's nothing to worry about if you're getting one. There's literally no term for whatever condition I had, so you have a good chance at avoiding it.

i poured holy water on my crotch to make a point and sure enough in the next few days i got a cyst where the water ran down. It was ****ing gross. When i popped it, the wet spot it made on my boxers looked like i pissed myself..
YEAH! ಠ_ಠ
