(Most are asymptomatic and incidental findings) The MRI is only as good as the Neuroradiologist or General Radiologist who reads it. The perinium pain may be referred or due to a local process. Your going to need a kick ass doctor (pun intended) Finland has many. ...Read more
Tarlov Cyst: This is a pouch of spinal fluid and nerve formed outside of the spinal canal, but may erode into the bone near the spinal canal. These are usually asymptomatic unless large >1.5cm. Treatment is after a diagnosis of exclusion—if all else fails, nothing else evident, and >1.5 cm, then surgery may be successful. Again, usually not symptomatic. This is a blemish on the nerves like a mole on the skin. ...Read more
