Pineal cyst
Jul 9, 2003
I was wondering if anyone could perhaps be of any help.
I am 38 years old and have been having headaches about 1 year ago and the Dr. I was seeing at the time ordered an MRI that came out normal. The doctor wrote it off saying, I was just a migraine suffer.
Now almost a little over a year later, the headaches have gotten worse. I have changed doctors, and with that, the new Dr. ordered a new MRI. This MRI shows I have pineal cyst 1.9 cm. The Neuro surgeon Iíve seen said he feels I need surgery do to the symptoms Iíve had and the size and the fact that itís grown to the size it is in such a short time, however he said he doesnít have much experience with this type of problem and is looking into finding someone who has had experience in this field. As I understand having a pineal cyst at my age is rare and mostly found in younger children.
Does anyone know anymore about this and might direct me to someone with some experience in this?
