Treatment for a Cyst identified through a CT Myelogram of the S1 Region
Since September of 2011 I have been having severe pain that started in both hips but mainly now radiates mostly from the right hip. The pain level is usually a 10 on a scale of 1-10. Unable to do PT since the pain is too severe. Recently had a CT Myelogram done which diagnosed a large cyst. It is said to be near the lower spine, very large at the top and longated down to a narrower size. Have been told by one Neurosurgeon that the only way to treat it is to remove it. I am going to another Neurosurgeon to get a second opinion.
I am a former cancer patient having had prostate cancer in 2007 and one of my kidneys has stopped working. What are the chances that this cyst could be malignant?
