Choroid Plexus Cysts
Usually normal: Most babies with choroid plexus cysts in the brain are normal, and almost all cysts go away by the end of the second trimester. But cysts can also be a marker for a problem called trisomy 18, which means an extra chromosome 18 in every cell of a baby's body. A maternal fetal medicine doctor can do an ultrasound and look for any other sign of trisomy 18. ...Read more

No: A simple cyst has a very specific benign appearance, while a cystadenocarcinoma usually has characteristics that are pathognomonic for a complex mass. A benign hemorrhagic cyst may resemble a worrisome cystadenoca. If you are worried about an ovarian cyst, talk to your doctor. You can do an ultrasound in 4-6 weeks. If it is a cancer, it will not be the same size or have the same characteristics. ...Read more
Yes: It can. It would be helpful to know your age and history to comment further. Septated cysts are also a malignancy risk but there are septated benign tumors too. Do you mean 27 cm or 27 mm? The smaller one 27 mm is fairly low risk regardless; if you mean the larger (27 cm) the risk is correspondingly higher. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more

Can peripheral neuropathy cause bilateral tarlov cysts? Or vice versa, what's the difference between bilateral tarlov cysts and one-sided tarlov cysts?
None of the above: Tarlov cysts are normally found incidentally on MRI studies. They are peri-neural cysts found adjacent to the spine, where nerve roots exit. They normally cause no symptoms. Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that may cause pain, numbness, or weakness. It is often due to high blood sugar. It affects the nerve itself, and rarely is a Tarlov cyst involved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brain tumor: It is a rare slow growing brain tumor that is located in the ventricular system of the choroid plexus. It results in increased cerebral spinal fluid which causes hydrocephalus and increased intracranial pressure. Symptoms can include increased headaches, vomiting, and vision changes. Surgery to remove the tumor usually cures the disease since it is not usually malignant. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Probably normal: Limited information here, am assuming this is a MRI finding. Venous plexus in this location is normal. If this is simply an incidental finding, probably no follow up necessary, or possibly an additional study or follow up MRI in a short time if there is some uncertainty. As always, speak with your clinician regarding appropriate course of action. ...Read more

No: The cervical plexus can be stretched during delivery.After the head is out, it is pulled forward & angled up or down to get the shoulders & rest of baby out.If the plexus responds with swelling around the nerves, transient loss of function(dys/wks) may be found.If the nerves are damaged by the stretch, nerves may be permanently damaged.This is birth trauma any kid could get.It is not hereditary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
