Benign pineal gland cyst cause?

Pineal gland cyst

Cyst
Pineal gland cysts are not at all uncommon. As long as the MR is not showing any tumor characteristics which it sounds like is the case here here. These cysts can also cause obstructive hydrocephalus but they would have seen that on MRI

Pineal cyst

A 2cm X 1cm cyst is not particularly large in an adult patient. What is more important is whether it is causing symptoms and whether it shows signs of a possible tumor on MR studies

Abscessed tooth. Pen vk for 13 days and still infected. Is augmentin safe when I have a pineal gland cyst since it lowers the seizure threshold?

Get help NOW!

Teeth
13 days of antibiotics is 2-3 times longer than you should have gone without definitive treatment. Antibiotics control the spread of dental infections, but by themselves do not cure them. The tooth needs root canal treatment or extraction for "cure." Pills alone won't do it. Ask your Dentist to refer you to Endodontist or Oral Surgeon immediately.

What are the symptoms of a pineal cyst?

These vary

Csf
Pineal cysts are fluid collections surrounded by a membrane located near the pineal gland. Most often these are found incidentally on CT/MRI scans done for other reasons. If these cysts become very large they can lead to obstruction of the normal spinal fluid pathways. This can lead to symptoms of headache, nausea, blurred vision- ie. symptoms of hydrocephalus.

Could a cyst in my pineal gland be causing low blood pressure?

Pineal Gland

Blood
the pineal gland produces several important hormones including melatonin. Melatonin influences sexual development and sleep-wake cycles. I wouldn't expect that a cyst would cause low blood pressure.
