Symptoms People with nasal polyps often complain about having a cold that has lasted for months or years. Symptoms include: Mouth breathing Nose feeling blocked ( nasal obstruction ) Reduced or complete loss of sense of smell (not common with sinus infection) Runny nose Headaches or pain are NOT common unless there is also a sinus infection. Signs and tests Examining the nose shows a grayish grape-like mass in the nasal cavity. A CT scan of the sinuses will show opaque (cloudy) spots where the polyps are.
Alternative Names Inclusion cyst; Gartner's duct cyst Symptoms Vaginal cysts usually do not cause symptoms, although there may be a soft lump felt in the vaginal wall or protruding from the vagina. Some women with vaginal cysts may have discomfort during sexual intercourse or difficulty inserting tampons. Signs and tests Upon pelvic examination, a mass or bulge of the vaginal wall may be seen or felt by the examiner. A biopsy may be necessary to rule out vaginal cancer , especially if the mass appears to be solid. If the cyst is located under the bladder or urethra, X-rays may be required to be sure the cyst does not involve these structures.
More than one-half of all women who are post-menopausal experience vaginal dryness which can cause pain and discomfort during sex .  Fortunately, there are over-the-counter and prescription treatments that help. Even so, only about one-fourth of these women talk with their doctor or seek any type of treatment.  For many, it is an embarrassing topic but keeping quiet means you deal with the pain and discomfort or you give up sex, creating problems in your relationship.
