Hi!
Well you can have obstructive hydrocephalus even though you have no tumors or cysts. This can happen due to brain bleeds and due to stenosis in the pathways of CSF flow. If third and lateral ventricles are both dilated then the stenosis or bleed has happened before the third ventricle. Please discuss with your doctor immediately. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
