Re: Cysts on the brain any opinions?
I totally understand your concern and Im not liking your dr. If you feel she is worth keeping, I would ask her to be more attentive with your questions. You certainly deserved a better answer... AND eye contact.
I have a spinal cord tumor and I remember how upset and confused I was when that was dx. Its kinda kewl now that Im one-in-a-million!!
Your neuro will be able to tell you what kind of cyst you most likely have (along with a prognosis and game plan). Some are slow growing and some are aggressive depending on the type. Id wager you will have a good idea of whats going on and whats going to happen once you see this dr. (Hang tight!)
Believe it or not sometimes these things (including cysts) can be left alone and monitored in lieu of removal. Unless its unavoidable and a rapid grower I strongly urge you to think hard about rushing into surgery (because you CAN find a dr that will take it out simply because u want it out).
Let us know how your appt goes.
