When I was 19 years old my Papa passed away from a malignant brain tumor. Afer his death, I went through a hypochondria spell thinking I had onealso. So to give me peace of mind, my dr, sent me for a CT scan. I have one of the largest brain cysts that Emory Univeristy Neurosurgeons have ever seen. I was born with it. No symptoms, no problems, no swishing of the brain or pressure, and his exact words were "NOthing to worry about..." This came from one of the top notch Neurosurgeons in the States. So after 18 years ( I am now 37) I do not worry about it. Mine is an arachnoid cyst. It's approx 8 cm large. So yes it is very large. My head (skull) as a child must of grew to capacitate it. I do not think about it anymore. It has fluid in it, usually spinal fluid is whats in the cysts. And mine isn't "connected" to any tissue. So do as your dr said, Do not worry. Of course every time you're head hurts or your leg hurts you are going to "think" its the cyst. God Bless...and Prayers for you!
