My husband has small cysts all over his body; three in his right upper arm. They don't move and are hard. He has a spot on his left inner thigh that we thought was a bug bite. But the spot has gotten larger and darker red. He has 3 more bumps under the skin of the red area. He also had a bump in his left buttocks. But says that one went away. I'm at a loss. He hates doctors.

At first I had a cyst on my neck that would get inflamed and painful. So I had that removed 3 times – not! It is still there and now has a cousin nearby. There is one on my back, chest and I have had ovarian cysts. I guess I am a cyst prone person but it really is annoying.

At age 17 I had a 12 inch diameter ovarian cyst removed. Now 30 years later I have a 12 inch diameter liver cyst removed. Both were benign. Now I fear this liver cyst has come back. Why would one person have two large cysts like this! I have had 9 abdominal surgeries for both cysts and hernias (maybe from the liver cyst pulling on my insides and tearing the fascia). I wonder what kind of underlying problem I have and where this fluid is coming from. Sick of recovering from surgery and sick of feeling sick.

I had a large sore or cyst come on the crease of my leg where the elastic of my underwear go around. It was quite painful. I could see it was coming to a head so I put gauze with Watkins brown salve on it and it finally came open. It drained for three days; mostly blood and pus. The hole now in my leg is as big as an eraser head. It feels better but I hope it heals quickly!

I have a cyst in the lower eyelid caused by a blocked tear duct, itchy and now have a large cyst showing.

I have a boil and don’t know why. It's right on my jawline. Not sure if it is a boil, cyst, pimple, or ingrown hair.

It began with 3 years of increased, heavy, and painful premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and menses, without a doctor to follow my symptoms. Later I bled clot-like excretions dropping to the floor from intolerable pain. Then it suddenly lessened; however, the PMS and core body temperature rose along with uncontrollable body odor. Last fall I grew concerned as I bled heavily for 30 days. Within these last 6 months, internal exams and a biopsy confirmed a golf ball sized benign tumor and 3 polyps in my uterus. Without medication, except a natural chlorophyll liquid, I began to see an endocrinologist. He confirmed my body is in a state of chaotic hormones. I am highly reactive emotionally, maintain my libido, however the hormones fluctuate from unmeasurable to off the charts. Menses have stopped for almost 3 months until a reading of estradiol over 900. The only treatment thus far is a thyroid medication to stimulate T-4 to T-3 conversion. I followed a low glycemic diet for 2 months prior to taking medication. I have done a natural 12 day detox to discover I have a polyp outbreak on one finger, reduced muscle mass, constant breast pain for now 40 days with 5 cysts in one and one in the other, an ovarian cyst and different interpretations of the exam results from doctors. Friends have always called me a health-nut. However, the last 5 years I have slowed down and began eating carbs with weight fluctuating, gaining 10 to 15 pounds within 10 days to 2 months.

I have a small cyst on my kidney and liver. My back hurts like crazy, I had several shots and it still hurts.
