Pericardial Cyst
A chest X-Ray detected a pericardial cyst, incidentally.  How can I get a thoracic surgeon or cardiologist to pay attention to me about getting it removed?  One doctor wanted to see an MRI first, but the procedure was denied by my health insurance.  I saw a cardiologist,, took a stress test, had a CT Scan with contrast, and have talked to my primary care doctor more than several times to get it removed, but nobody's is serious about it like I am.....What can you suggest I do at this point?  The size is 2.3 cm and 3.2 cm.  Is it something I should be concerned about?  Is there a possibility of a tamponade event as I age into my mid-sixties?
