Has anyone heard of a new method to diagnose cysts as benign or cancerous?   I am not sure if its available yet but I believe you are injected with something and based on its interaction with the cyst it can diagnose if cyst is malignant or benign. Thank you

A CT with and without contrast is the gold standard.  Even some that appear malignant are not 10% of the time. Size and complexity of the cyst factor in.
