Urachal cysts are congenital anomalies that occur due to incomplete closure of the urachus, a channel present during fetal development. These cysts can cause urinary symptoms and may require appropriate treatment.
- Pain or pressure sensation in the area around the navel: Urachal cysts can cause pain or discomfort in the area around the navel, especially during urination or when the bladder is full.
- Recurring urinary infections: The presence of an urachal cyst can increase the risk of recurring urinary infections due to the buildup of bacteria.
- Bleeding or discharge from the navel: In some cases, the urachal cyst can cause bleeding or discharge from the navel.
- Difficulty urinating: Urachal cysts can obstruct normal urine flow, causing difficulty urinating or a sense of incomplete bladder emptying.
To understand the most appropriate treatment for urachal cysts, it is recommended to make an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialist visit.
