I have a cyst close to the gallbladder fossa. I have had a cholecystectomy and have reacurring pain. Could this be remanent gallbladder left over?

Cyst: I believe that your surgeon and the radiologist should review your images and come up with a plan to further identify the exact nature of the mass and determine what other studies or procedures would be most helpful in pinpointing the diagnosis (ct scan, mri). I would be concerned about an abscess, for example. Would a needle biopsy be advisable? Is an exploratory operation indicated? ...Read more

Should 9mm menigioma in posterior fossa be watched or removed.

Should 9mm menigioma in posterior fossa be watched or removed.

Watch it: Many meningiomas don't change in size and it's safe to watch them over time. I would wonder why there was a ct scan or MRI done in the first place; if you were having symptoms that could be related to the meningioma then that might change things but in most cases meningiomas can be safely monitorred over time, and if you can avoid brain surgery you probably should! ...Read more

What is the function of fossa ovalis in embryonic human heart and why it becomes foramen ovale?

No function in adult: This is the adult anatomic footprint of the normal path of oxygenated blood from the uterus to bypass the fetal lungs & provide oxygen to the fetus's body. This path is in the wall between the fetus's left & right atria. At birth, this hole immediately closes, putting baby blood in the lungs. In adults, this closure may not be complete (patent for amen ovale) & blood may shunt across the atria. ...Read more

I have a left middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst. What is considered big and should I be worried about it?

Most asymptomatic: Arachnoid cysts occur in about 1 - 2% of the population, with a 2:1 preponderance in males. Only about 20% become symptomatic, and it is thought that one is born with these cysts. These cysts vary in size greatly, and again, typically remain asymptomatic throughout life. Discuss this more with your neurosurgeon whether this requires any additional intervention other than observation. ...Read more
