Not sure what you : Mean by "double loop cyst." he may be referring to a benign incidental finding (usually noted on your lumbar spine mri), which are mostly asymptomatic called tarlov cysts, which are perineurial cysts.

Antiviral meds reduce the risk of infecting another person but are not 100% effective. ...Read more
