  • I have had them before and my doctor says they will come and go, they wont hurt you for the most part. I did however have cysts on the umbilical cord which took all the nutrients from my daughter and I had to have an emergency c-section, don't panic if your doctor was concerned you would already know more about your situation

  • alright cool.. thank you!!

    well see my son had one when he was born in his lung... but they did surgery to remove it..
    then my younger sis had one in the ovary too so i'm wondering if its something tht is passed down..
