Thread: Doctor in Bayarea for Colloid Cyst

    Default Doctor in Bayarea for Colloid Cyst

    I have recently moved to San Jose/Bayarea in California. I have a 8mm CC, and I am very unsure whom to talk to about this. I am having "weirdest" symptoms ... and I want to see a really good doctor.

    Tinnitus, Dizziness, Blurred vision, Pain behind eyes, Nausea ... the whole nine yards, but I do not have enlarged ventricles, or any other signs of hydro. so my doctor is saying wait and watch!

    Not sure if wait and watch is the right thing to do.

    Thanks Guys!

    Are you seeking a second opinion? Is the doctor, who is telling you to wait and watch, a neurologist? Are you looking for another neurologist?

    In your shoes, I would check out on line all of the major hospitals, especially ones associated with a university, in the Bay Area. Explore their neurology departments, their neurologists and their sub specialities (maybe find one, who specializes in colloid cyst?), then search on line for the neurologists to see if they have any ratings by patients.

    Here's the link to UCSF:

    You might start here, by calling their neurology department to explain your issues, and perhaps get a referral to a neurologist, who could help you.

    Hope you find a good doctor and get the help you need to relieve your pain.

    Love & Light,

    Thanks Rose.

    I've been suffering, but doctors do not seem to give a damn about it. I went through MRI, no hydro, good, but not changes a bit with what I feel. And they do not care about what I "feel"!
