My daughter is 5 years old. She was born with fluid in her ears and spent the first couples years of her life deaf. She had jaundice when she was born. I didnt think much of it then. The doctors did several surgeries to repair her hearing. She also had her tonsils removed. Recently, she has gotten a cyst on her chin. The doctors claim it is throglossum duct cyst, yet when she did a ct scan nothing was showing up. Growing up she always gets bloody noses when shes swimming. Lately, she will get them before storms. She is a very high spritited little girl and doesnt let anything slow her down. When her cyst is inflammed it makes her face get flushed. The doctors recommended I bring her back to see them when it inflames again. I constantly worry it is worse than they are telling me. If it was the thryoglossum cyst wouldnt it have showed up on the ct scan? What could be causing her to have frequent nose bleeds related to water? :confused:
