Hi,
Colloid cysts are benign congenital tumors that may lead to acute obstructive hydrocephalus, increased intracranial pressure, and, rarely, intracystic hemorrhage.Indication for surgery is from associated hydrocephalus that is caused by obstruction from the enlarged cyst. Patients with few or no symptoms and have small colloid cysts and large ventricles are managed conservatively and observed with serial MRIs. Patients with small cysts and normal-sized ventricles are not likely to deteriorate and do not need surgery. Talk to your doctor about this for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
