Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

Small cyst near bridge of nose and eyebrow

06/01/2007

Question:

Back at beginnning of February i developed a swelling close to my nose in the eyebrow (actually just below) area. I was given skin antibiotics as this had swelled my face up too. The swelling has happened before (cellulitus i think). Now a am left with the small pearly cyst that has remained for nearlky 3 months and i have also got a smaller one on the other side. I don`t wear glasses but it is where glasses would rest. Should i have these checked again.

I also had my first nosebleed ever last week.

Answer:

If the cysts have remained stable, they are probably benign.  However, if they bother you or you are concerned, I would consult an ENT physician.  It is unlikely they are related to your nose bleed.
