looking some info regarding cysts

medical journal pages are less compared to artificial intelligence but it hard to digest the medical terms..tak larat mak tau..
1. Intro:
Tumors and cysts are two distinct entities.
  • Cyst. A cyst is a sac that may be filled with air, fluid or other material. A cyst can form in any part of the body, including bones, organs and soft tissues. Most cysts are noncancerous (benign). Some common examples of cysts include sebaceous cysts, small bumps that form just beneath the skin, and ovarian cysts. It's important to note, however, that nearly all cancers are capable of producing cysts.
  • Tumor. A tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue. Like a cyst, a tumor can form in any part of the body. A tumor can be benign or cancerous (malignant).

2. Case report
Pediatric chylolymphatic mesenteric cyst - a separate entity from cystic lymphangioma: a case series

Published: 9 November 2009
Journal of Medical Case Reports 2009, 3:111 doi:10.1186/1752-1947-3-111

Chylolymphatic mesenteric cysts are rare entities with variable presentations and this has surgical implications in the pediatric age group. Eight patients met the histopathological criteria of chylolymphatic mesenteric cyst. These patients were in the age range 18 months to 10 years with a mean age of 4.5 years. 

atoyissan wrote: most of the mesenteric and omental cysts occur in child..based on the paper above the average age is 4.5 years. before this I don't have any idea that children can get cyst as an adult and the myth that cysts only occur in the woman body is totally wrong. Have you heard about acne cyst? you better google it now.

3. A new classification for mesenteric omental cysts

atoyissan wrote: mesenteric omental cysts can be described as abnormal-fluid sack at the bowel mesentery or omentum. It can be rupture, bleed, become infected, or lead to bowel intruction or torsion with infarction. I think this is common among cyst. overall this paper explain about whether the cyst recurrent and discuss other thing regarding pathology and clinical findings. other than that tak berani I nk explain nnti lagi expert dr specialist karang terpaksa tukar bidang pulak

atoyissan wrote: case 1 detected to 13 year old white male. he having diffuse abdominal pain for 2 days. this is only symtom that he had. no history of infectious diseases. no fever at all. after 24 h of observation they do the surgical exploration (cam dora the explorer la pulakkan..main explore2 jek ingat surf web ke). the patient was dischared in 4 days with good condition after doing the operation and after postoperative day 14. normally after they open the peritoneum they found the haemorrhagic fluid (an escape of blood from a ruptured blood vessel). It is hard to access if it happen to children. according to blestel about 0.1% of children undergoing a laparotomy for suspected appendicitis. based on cases reported patients pain are vary depend on the condition of the cyst.
