I see no one has responded to your post yet. I don't have this experience with a child, but my husband had a similar situation.
He was daignosed 3 years ago with a coloid cyst of the third ventricle. He was set up for surgery within 2 weeks, as the cyst had probably been growing most of his life, and was causinig much distortion of the brain, along with fluid build up and many, many sypmtoms.
He had what he thought were migrane headaches beginning in his late teens, right up unitl the surgery (gone now).
Also, panic attacks, anxiety, memory issues, eye sight trouble, etc... He actually had prostatitis - (pain in the prostate area - many usual tests, and no medical explanation - but now it's gone). So, we don't really know what other symptoms he may have had over the years, due to this cyst.
He had to have it removed, because it would have just kept growing, and could have caused a stroke, or even death. It's been 2 1/2 years since his surgery, and he is doing great - even better than before.
And, thankfully, it's a totally benign occurance - any very rare also.

I don't know if this is similar to what your son has - but it could be. Good luck with your appointments. I'm sure your son will come through fine.
