Omental Cyst Vs Mesenteric Cyst

There is no specific difference between the omental cysts and mesenteric cysts. Both cysts may have the same mode of action in affecting the body. However, their location can differentiate them. The mesenteric cysts are not freely moveable, whereas omental cysts are freely moveable in the body. In addition, Omental cysts are removable without disturbing the surrounding bowel. On the other hand, while treating mesenteric cysts, other surrounding tissues or organs may also suffer.


Your general physician or pediatric surgeon may diagnose the disease if your child suffers from severe abdominal pain or discomfort. Moreover, the second most frequent diagnosis is appendicitis.
