A cyst is a mass made up of a collection of material, usually mucus that is surrounded by a membrane. It is found underneath the mucosa, within the superficial lamina propria, the layer that is important for normal voice function.
Epidermoid cyst is trivially protruded in the vocal cords while mucosal retention cysts usually develops under the vocal folds membrane then protruded inside the larynx.
It is important to discern vocal cyst from other laryngeal diseases like vocal nodules or polyp when diagnosing the problem.
The cause of vocal cyst can be incurred by a genetic problem or the secondary condition in which a patient abuses voice.
Through the microlaryngeal surgery vocal cyst is removed then PDL laser is being applied to avoid scarring and closing of the
surgical point. It is important to remove the root completely to prevent recurrence.
