    Cool Husband diagnosed with 7mm colloid cyst

    My husband was in a wreck on 4/27/16 and went to the ER. He had a CT scan and was sent home with the ER stating all was well. I pushed for him to go to a chiropractor and went to get his records two weeks later. To my amazement, the impression states a 7mm colloid cyst was found and an MRI recommended.

    HE followed up with the GP and she was hesitant to refer him for an MRI, but this also confirmed the cyst. He was basically told that these are not uncommon and he doesn't need to be concerned since no hydrocephalus was noted.

    With all this said, I am frustrated and have been urging the GP to refer us to a neurologist for follow up. She basically told him it was fatty tissue and benign. I have done several hours of research and learned that this in fact is inaccurate. I am awaiting a call from his GP to find out which neurologist he will have an appt. with, but I am very frustrated overall with the complacency of the medical community about this so I dont feel encouraged much will be resolved at this appointment'

    He has thrown up a few times weekly for twenty years and went several years ago to get tests run on his digestive system which were negative. He has complained of having occasional headaches and his vision continues to get worse. He is 43, and works at a nuclear plant where he has to climb to high locations and has other dangerous duties. I even worry about his driving and wonder if the wreck is a result to the cyst or not? No one seems to think this is serious including most of my friends, family, and doctors.

    Any suggestions are welcome. I live in Georgia and have heard Emory has a chief neurosurgeon by the name of Costas Hidjapanyis with expertise. Does anyone know of a him or good places to seek treatment?
