Maxillary SInus Mucocele-CT

Mucoceles are most commonly frontal or frontoethmoid in origin with maxillary sinus mucoceles accounting for less. Often resulting from trauma or ostial obstruction, mucoceles often expand gradually, but their progression can be much more rapid during episodes of infection. Frequently, the surrounding bone demonstrates either thickening as a result of osteitis from chronic inflammation or remodeling with resorption secondary to the chronic expansile forces and osteolytic enzymes.

I came across your site while researching methods for eradicating maxillary cysts. I was surprised to discover that maxillary cysts were somewhat rare as I have them bilaterally. I am seeing an ENT finally next Wednesday, July 15. Any advise and/or knowledge you can lend me about treatments, recovery time (if surgery is the outcome), things to ask the Doc, etc., would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
