Pineal mass

I was diagnosed with chiari malformation type 1 in February as well as having a 1 cm pineal mass.

The Chiari has been taken care of. I went through decompression surgery with a laminectomy of my C1 and C2 almost 12 weeks ago.

I had a question...now that my brain is decompressed and can "breath"...is it possible the pineal mass could start growing? And would it really start growing so soon? I've started getting headaches again with horrible mood swings.

My neurosurgeon wasn't super concerned about the mass, but did tell me to be sure I scheduled yearly MRI's to keep an eye on it.
