I have arachnoid cyst on the back side of my brain and numbess in my left side and rite foot.What are some of of treatment options?

Qualified NO: Only approximately 5% of arachnoid cysts become symptomatic, and 75% of the symptomatic cysts occur in children, not adults. So your approximate chance of becoming symptomatic is 1% i.e. it's 99% likely that the cyst won't bother you. Depending on the location the cyst could cause seizures or vision problems, etc. However, NO treatment is indicated UNLESS the patient has symptoms. ...Read more
