9 yr old with new brain cyst

My 9 year old daughter was just diagnosed with a cyst near her pituitary gland.  MY greatest concern is that 6 years ago she also had a cerebellar pilocytic astrocytoma removed.  Her doctor seems to act like this cyst is no big deal but I think there may be a connection to her tumor 6 years ago and now a cyst.  She has regular MRI's and it never showed up before yesterday.  Is there a need for concern?

Is it near or on her pituitary? A cyst on it, yes, is a means for concern. And near it, depending on the size, if it is touching - and is it near her optic nerve?

I would take her to a pediatric neuro-endo. At least get baseline testing.
