Cyst in any part
Cysts occur within tissue, and can affect any part of the body. They vary in size  from microscopic to the size of some team-sport balls - large cysts can  displace internal organs

Causes

Cysts can be caused by:

  1. Tumors
  2. Genetic conditions
  3. Infections
  4. A fault in an organ of a developing embryo
  5. A defect in the cells
  6. Chronic inflammatory conditions
  7. Blockages of ducts in the body which cause a fluid build-up
  8. A parasite
  9. Impact injury that breaks a vessel

Symptoms

Symptoms vary enormously, depending on what type of cyst it is. In most cases the patient becomes aware of an abnormal lump - as is usually the case with cysts of the skin or just below the skin.

A cyst in the mammary glands (breasts) may be noticeable when the breasts are examined by touching them - the lump will be palpable. Breast cysts are often painful.

Some cysts in the brain can cause headaches as well as other symptoms.
