Suprapubic cartilaginous cyst is a rare entity presenting as a slow growing suprapubic mass in multiparous post-menopausal women. Common presentation will be painless mass at the pubis, recurrent urinary tract infections, dysuria, dyspareunia, urgency and frequency. Degenerative changes in the pubic symphysis are a common association which may be manifested as few air foci within the cyst similar to a vaccum phenomenon in degenerated intervertebral discs. This cystic lesion can also arise from the inferior aspect of the pubic symphysis which may present as a vulval mass. Knowledge of this entity is essential as this is managed conservatively unlike other urinary bladder masses or uterine masses avoiding unnecessary interventions.
