Alternative Treatments For Tarlov Cyst

How serious are synovial and tarlov cysts in the low back? And will they get bigger? What is the best treatment? Thanks
Let me explain: Tarlov cysts are defined as cysts formed within the nerve-root sheath at the dorsal root ganglion. The etiology of these cysts is not well understood; most common in the lower spine.

I've had colleagues tell me that evening primrose oil is the first herbal to try for painful / lumpy breasts. An evidence-based holist in your community may be able to offer more. ...Read more

Good question: Tarlov cysts can be seen on MRI near a dorsal root ganglion. Those that are larger than 1.5 CM are more likely to be symptomatic.

Your going to need a kick ass doctor (pun intended) Finland has many. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Possible: Tarlov cysts are found within the sacrum and the nerves going to the bowel/bladder are exiting from there. So there could be a connection. Sometimes caudal epidural steroid injections can be helpful however if short-lived in rare situations surgery maybe performed to decompress these areas. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Tarlov cysts: Tarlov cysts are benign outpouchings of the meninges which may or may not contain nerve roots. These are usually asymptomatic (incidental finding on MRI scans of the lumbar spine) and occur in the presacral space which is behind the rectum and in front of the sacrum and tail bone (coccyx). The Tarlov cysts are not the cause of the low back pain. ...Read more
