This is Dr. David

I am glad you are seeing an ENT doctor

branchial cleft cysts are epithelial cysts that arises on the sides of your neck which are formed during your development when you were in your mother's womb

have you had a neck ultrasound or a neck MRI scan to look at your neck?

do you have lumps in your neck?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes had mri scan they have taken puss out three times and i have a lump below left ear am i two old to have one.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
you are not too old to have branchial cleft cysts

you could have had them all of your life and only they are getting infected now and causing pus now.

if they continue to cause you problems, your surgeon might have to do surgery to cut them out.
