Vocal Fold Cysts are fluid-filled or semisolid growths that typically form on only one vocal fold and unlike nodules can form at any point along the vocal fold. They form in the superficial lamina propria of the vocal fold, underneath the epithelium. Cysts are not associated with voice misuse or overuse. Treatments for cysts include voice therapy and surgery. As always if experiencing vocal difficulty consult a medical professional.
