Thyroid cysts

Dear Dr
I have developed cysts on my thyroid. Why does this happen? What is the most common treatment and what are the side effects apart from discomfort. I have had blood tests done but am still waiting for the results. There seems to be no data that I can find on this problem.
Thanks

Jay, it might be due to an infection, over-stimulation of the thyroid, connective tissue disease and sometimes tumours. The best would be to wait for the test results and see what they have to say. Good luck.
