    Post Can a Subdural Hematoma turn into an Arachnoid Cyst?

    Hi, I am so confused. I would very much appreciate knowing if a subdural hematoma can turn into an arachnoid cyst. I understand through reading that arachnoid cysts increase the incidence of hematoma's, but my question is can a Subdural Hematoma turn into an Arachnoid Cyst.
    My second question is do arachnoid cysts have tentacles? As in "they are called arachnoid because they are like spiders in the way the legs go down into the brain." That is what someone told me, but from reading it doesn't sem so. Is this true that they seem to seep down into the brain, or is it the position in the brain??? I am so confused and upset about this!
    To anyone reading this Thank You so much and God bless you for reading this!

    from, Confused
