My child passed out a couple of nights ago. He had been sick during the first part of the week and running a fever. He wasn't eating good, but was eating small amounts. He is a very good size child for his age. He is 9 and weighs 110 pounds. I know the weight is high for his age, however he is almost 5 feet tall also. He is a very big child. But, my issue is he has constantly complained with headaches for 2 years now. He complains with a headache everyday. But, this last week when he was sick and passed out on me. I also thought he was taking a seizure because he started jerking. Then he just stopped moving and I couldn't feel or hear him breathing. He became non-responsive. Of course after calling 911 and getting him to the hospital they done blood work and a ct scan. The blood work was good. The ct scan showed a cyst on his brain. They said they didn't think him passing out had anything to do with the cyst on his brain. But, my question to you is; What would cause a cyst on his brain? Can they tell how long the cyst has been there? How will this effect him longterm? I haven't ever dealt with anything like this. They have an MRI scheduled for him on Wed. of this week. Even if they say this cyst isn't something that I should worry about how true is that statement? Any foreign matter in your body can't be good right? Please help! I just need to know if my worries will lead to where I'm terrified it could; cancer. Because cancer runs high in our family.
