What is a Urachal Cyst?

Description of the disease

A urachal cyst is a developmental anomaly in which a cyst-like cavity forms in the area of the urachus, which connects the umbilical pit to the bladder in the fetus during pregnancy.


  • Simple urachal cyst
  • Complex urachal cyst


  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Blood in the urine


The causes of urachal cyst formation are not fully understood. It is believed to be associated with abnormalities in the fetal development process.


Ultrasound, CT, and MRI are used for diagnosis.


Small urachal cysts may not require treatment and may resolve on their own. In complex cases, surgical intervention may be required.


Since the exact causes of urachal cyst formation are unknown, there is no specific prevention. Regular medical check-ups can help in the timely detection of the problem.


A urologist or gynecologist is responsible for diagnosing and treating urachal cysts.
