What Is A Brain Cyst Or Arachoid Cyst?

Brain cyst is the most common lesion seen on a brain tomography of a patient who was admitted with any complaint; coincidentally. A brain cyst is usually benign and has been present in the patient’s brain since childhood. Among these benign cysts, the most common is the arachnoid cyst. These gaps filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are usually present from birth, and sometimes they can develop later on due to a trauma or infection such as meningitis.

Very rarely when they cause epilepsy or disrupt the function in the adjacent brain area; they need to be treated with a shunt operation or endoscopic procedure, as if they were a hydrocephalus case. Those who do not lead to any complaints are monitored by neurosurgeons at certain time intervals for the possibility of a change in temperament. If they grow over time or if they cause some important problems on the patient’s nervous system, surgery is performed. Of course, it is also very important that the patient always informs the physicians about the presence of such a cyst.
