How To Treat Perineural Cysts?
, I was diagnosed with HP. From MRI’s examination, it was found that there was also a perineural cyst. I want to ask, is a perineural cyst dangerous or can it go away on its own? thanks.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Perineural cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form on nerve root fibers, most commonly found in the tail of the spine, but can also be found elsewhere in the spine. Perineural cysts are different from other cysts in the spine in that they can be found in nerve fibers.
A person with such a cyst usually does not complain of specific symptoms or even asymptomatic in the majority of sufferers. Symptoms that may arise include pain in the lower back, buttocks, or upper legs. Because they do not have specific symptoms, doctors usually diagnose these disorders based on the results of imaging tests, one of which is MRI.
Several cases stated that the onset of these cysts was preceded by trauma to the back area. Trauma is for example due to falls, accidents, or strenuous activity.
In most cases, this disorder is not dangerous. Patients can experience no symptoms and also do not need special therapy. However, these cysts do not disappear spontaneously. The only appropriate therapy for this disorder is surgery. However, the operation did not have a very good success, because the procedure is quite risky. For this reason, careful consideration is needed with an orthopedic specialist if the patient wants surgery.
So, I hope this information can help you
