My 12 years old son has adhd. One year ago he was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst. Now he has severe headaches and lost vision in his right eye. I would like to know if this is related to the arachnoid cyst.
Location & size of : The arachnoid cyst on current MRI compared to prior MRI or ct scan determines likelihood of its causing headache & vision loss. While some pediatric neurosurgeons dismiss the possibility, others like dr. Benjamin warf at boston children's hospital, assess each case & perform minimally-invasive endoscopic surgery to divert fluid from an arachnoid cyst if needed.

What do you suggest if my son is 28 months and had surgery to repair large vsd when he was 3 months. he has just been diagnosed with?
Confusing question!: If your son's surgery was successful, he may have been released by the cardiac surgeon and cardiologist. If not, you should schedule a follow-up visit with the cardiologist. Otherwise, I would discuss your concerns with your pediatrician - poor growth and poor exercise tolerance are signs that the VSD repair may have failed. ...Read more
I had a TIA and I was diagnosed with pfo. My doctor suggests me to close it he say its better die in an infarct than live with a stroke if it happens. Do you agree?
Depends: If you are young and relatively healthy then you should survive a surgical procedure. Anticoagulation may also be an option to prevent stroke. My best recommendation however is to get a second and perhaps third opinion first and then make up your mind. You may be surprised by the differences of opinon. Make sure that the hospital and doctor where the surgery is has a good rating. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have had severe pain and doctors confirmed it was my appendix, it has not ruptured what are the chances it will later in time?
Sounds "Fishy": In all but the most unusual circumstances, appendicitis is an acute illness that progresses to rupture if left untreated w/in days of onset; the operation is an emergency, performed asap. If you are well enough to be going online to inquire, somehow i sense this is not being treated as an emergency, which makes me question the certainty of the diagnosis.I advise a 2nd opinion w/a general surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See specialist: Without further information it will be difficult to give a specific recommendation. She will probably be best served by seeing a neurosurgeon who specializes in aneurysm treatment (either by surgery or via endovascular treatment through the groin) to discuss the issues and the options and come to a decision. Factors to consider are the location of the aneurysm, family history, age and preferences. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My son was diagnosed with mesenteric lymphadenitis 8 weeks ago. This along with back pain has not seemed to resolve. How long do you wait it out?

If there are NO symptoms, (TIA, stroke) and no significant blockage due to plaque they can be OBSERVED with a vascular monitoring team. Okay to ask for second opinion or more detail if surgery has been recommended by a surgeon. Be well ...Read more
My brother has ust been diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma are my sister and I likely to get it too?
My dad is 90. Was diagnosed with colon cancer last june. It was stage 3 and still localized. How long would he be able to live? He wants no treatment.
Varies alot: I assume your father had the cancer removed surgically. If so, he might have been cured of colon cancer. At the age of 90, and depending on his overall health, chemotherapy would not likely add much to the chance of being cured. I would estimate that he has about a 50% chance of not having a recurrence of his colon cancer, and dying of other causes or "old age". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
