PINEAL CYST SIDE EFFECTS?

My 14 yr. old daughter had head injury in the 2 wks. ago and had a CT scan.  Minor concussion & no damage but CT found brain cyst near pineal gland. Endocrinology refer her to do the MRI she done the MRI last week,  Doc told me today the CYST appears. Doc said my daughter can continue with her normal life because this don’t have any side effects to her or nothing to worry about it.  Can it possibly just go away without surgery?  I am terrified of future problems. He has headaches only occasionally. I don't want this cyst diagnosis to cause my son to miss out on a happy life. She suffer anxiety and depression because her weight but I would like to know what really I can expect from her with this condition or this condition don’t going to affect her normal life??

Hi,

Pineal cysts are asymptomatic and are mostly incidental findings on MRI and CT scan. Anyone with a pineal cyst can lead a normal life without any complications. Very rarely the cysts can produce symptoms like headaches, visual disturbances and hydrocephalus.
Asymptomatic cysts require no treatment although sometimes the doctor can monitor the cysts over time by regular CT scans and MRI.

Hope this helps!

I'm confused, if my 13 year old goes to the dr. because she has been having migraines for up to 6 months and severe pain behind her eyes, how can this be nonsymptomatic. They say her cyst is 1.4cm, and will have another appt. in 6 months to casll if any more symptoms arise. I'm scared todeath, what else do I look for?
