Canal of Nuck cyst - Anogenital in
A canal of Nuck cyst is defined as a hydrocele (fluid-filled hernia of the peritoneum) that extends into the inguinal canal. It is a very rare condition, and the specific etiology of formation of the cyst is unknown. These cysts often present as painless swelling in the labial or inguinal regions. Patients may describe that a bulge appears with standing and improves when supine. Some patients will have symptoms of pain (especially after periods of standing) associated with the swelling.
