Subject: What to do?
So I fly to Philly this morning and the movie is a Richard Gere movie
where he's a surgeon and he loses a patient getting a cyst removed from
her cheek.

Just last week I was emailing back and forth with my brother about wanting
to get one removed from my neck. I was expressing concern over how close
it was to my cartroid artery. It's actually right on top of it. He said
there would be a lot of doctors and/or surgeons that wouldn't take the job.

This thing is the size of a golf ball. It doesn't cause any discomfort,
but it's definitely an eyesore. Is it worth dying for? I'm saying I'll
skip it unless I need to interview for a new job. If it gets to that
point, I have to do it.

If it doesn;t cause you any discomfort and removal is a health risk then
leave it alone.

When you become single again and it is cramping your style with the
hookers then look into getting it removed.

Is your brother a physician? Talk to a couple doctors - your primary
care physician will refer you for a surgery consult. If there's a
significant threat from the procedure and it's benign, they'll tell
you to leave it alone or seek some alternative treatment. Otherwise,
they're pretty good at the stuff now. Yeah, ANY surgery poses some
element of risk... but hell, what doesn't?

Shitty situation though. Regardless -- good luck.

I had the surgery to remove one from my neck two years ago. Yes, it was very
near the cartroid artery but there was no problem at all. It was done as an
out-patient surgery and I was back on the treadmill and lifting weights in
the gym the next day. These things just continue to grow if not removed.
My advice is get a good surgeon and get it done. It's no big deal.

Don't they do surgery close to arteries all the time?

I would go to my family doctor, who would not be doing the surgery, for an
unbiased opinion.

I wouldn't be too concerned about it because of a movie.

If it turns out it is dangerous, just get a matching prosthetic implanted
on the other side an become a professional Frankenstein impersonator.

Hope this helps

Have you tried to shoot the cyst off your neck with a gun? Bow and arrow?

A Dremel tool would provide a bit more control. Or an orbital sander.

Had a large benign cyst removed from the back of my knee. Suffer from some
RA in that knee so if I had to do it over, would have had it removed sooner.
YMMV.
