Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

A left posterior fossa arachoid cyst is rare. Hearing loss and problems with balance are common. Treatment of posterior fossa arachnoid cysts primarily consists of surgical procedures designed to decompress the cyst.

Anonymous, think of the skull as a closed box. Any mass, such as a tumor or cyst, takes up limited space and puts pressure on the brain. Having a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst demands medical attention and intervention; it is not safe and should not be ignored.
