Not all Thyroglassal duct Cysts Need Surgery: Try Scarless, Painless Ethanol Ablation PEI Instead.
There is no scar after Ethanol ablation. Go home right after with no major complications or pain.
Evaluation of TGD cysts need to be done by a non-surgeon. ENT surgeons will tell you surgery is the only answer. Wrong Ethanol ablation works and without a scar or hospital visit and no post op recovery time. Also it is less costly than surgery and has less complications.

Study results were positive for the use of PEI for TGDcysts.
Mean volume of the treated thyroglossal duct cyst decreased significantly from 8.9 mL to 1.9 mL (P = .019; volume reduction rate = 76.6%)
Ethanol ablation is a feasible and convenient procedure without surgical scars and hospitalization for TGDC patients. Favorable outcomes can be achieved without significant complications.
