Why After The Surgery, Thyrogloss Duct Cyst In The Neck Appears And Enlarges Again?
the child has a ductustyroglosus cyst that is in the neck and runs out after surgery after the cyst surgery appears again and begins to enlarge.
Hello Ilun, Thank you for the question.
Thyrogloss duct cysts form when the formation of the thyroid gland (which is in the neck area) in infants in the womb is imperfect and leaves the remaining cells. These cells then form cysts. This cyst is a congenital abnormality from birth. Small cysts cause no symptoms other than a lump in the neck, but a large cyst can interfere with the process of swallowing and breathing. In addition, sufferers can also experience pain, redness, or enlarged lump size if the cyst is infected by bacteria. Handling of thyroglossal duct cysts is the surgical removal of cysts. If the cyst is infected, the doctor will give antibiotics to treat the infection first. Even though it has been removed, in 3 percent of cases, this cyst can indeed reappear. If the cyst was previously infected, this condition also causes the cyst to grow back later. This condition is not necessarily related to previous operations. Please consult your doctor who is treating your child beforehand regarding further treatment.
I hope this helps.
