why are they insisting this cyst is asymptomatic when i have constant seizure causing, memory problems, behavioral changes, dizziness, migraines and speech problems. if the doctors say it is not cancerous then why do i need to see a neuro oncologist? i am sick and i need help?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

These are questions only your doctor can answer as he is privy to your general health and test results. In Arachnoid cysts that are not causing any symptoms or other complications, a doctor may likely monitor the cyst over time to watch for potential growth or other changes. If it begins to cause problems, they may recommend treatment. You can find more information below.


Speak to your doctor about your concerns. If you are still not happy, it's ok to seek a second opinion. Keep us posted.
