    Default First a tumour, now a cyst

    Nearly ten years ago, I had a benign tumour removed from my temporal lobe.

    The effect of this was to bring an end to epileptic seizures that were uncontrollable with medication.

    Now, following my first scan since the surgery, I've been told that I have a cyst that wasn't previously there.

    Has anybody else experienced this? Did you have frequent headaches with nausea?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Tris:

    A colloid cyst almost always occurs in the third ventricle near the foramina of Monro. A good summary of the cyst and your options can be found at http://www.neurosurgery.com.au/pdfs/...oidcystpdf.pdf Headaches are a common symptom of the colloid cyst and surgery is generally recommend for cysts >= 1cm.

    Best of health to you,
    Matthew
