About Me: Female, 38, Richmond Hill, ON, member since Jan 2010
I am a 32 year old mother of one. I was diagnosed with a pericardial cyst in 2007. It was found incidentally as in most cases. It is very frightening. Doctor's say that it is non-life threatening but when you know you have something like this in your chest it is quite n
[More]erve wrecking. I was told by one doctor in another province it would have been removed if I hadn't been pregnant at the time. I no longer reside there and the doctors in Ontario want to leave it and observe it. I get chest pains, chronic chest infections ect and they can't say yes or no if these illnesses are realtive to the cyst.
