My scoliosis xrays show 3 neural foramen perineural nerve root sleeve cysts, 1 measuring 9mm l1-2, c7-t1, t1-t2, all are right sided. What are these?
Neural cysts: In most instances, these are benign (not cancer) expansions of the nerves, and they are typically seen as 'incidental findings' and often do not need treatment. They are typically not associated with pain, but if the doctor treating you -who probably looked at the imaging studies- is concerned, further work up is indicated with a gadolinium enhanced scan. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a 9mm cyst inside neural foramina at t1-t2 and my ring and pinky fingers are going numb a lot. i have to see a neurosurgeon- how will they fix?
How will they fix?: The first question is whether this "cyst" is actually causing your symptoms. What you describe could also be an ulnar neuropathy at the elbow. Has that been ruled out? The last thing you want is an unnecessary back operation that "fixes" nothing. A good surgeon is one who knows when NOT to operate. Stop trying to 2nd-guess the doctors & make sure your diagnosis is correct. That's key. ...Read more

Endometriosis: could also manifest as cysts with hemorrhagic internal contents. However, usually there are other findings, not just a solitary cyst.

However, the vast majority of the time, the cyst you describe is simply a functional hemorrhagic cyst. ...Read more

35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?
Further testing: If you have been having an MRI every 6 months, it's possible this hyperintensity showed up before, but was not reported. Sometimes small versions of this are missed during other tests. Having another MRI in the future should be an adequate method to study this. If you have another MRI 6 months from now, that should be helpful enough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wife's Mri of spine shows C2 C3 demonstrate T1 T2 bright signal along right lower aspect disc space. L3 small vertebral hemangimo. Minor facet hypertrophy at L4 L5 encroaching on the foramina. PLEASE explain these findings. Thank you Drs.

Narrowed foramina from arthritis in the facets can be symptomatic and treated conservatively with anti inflammatories, steroid injections or rarely (sometimes micro) surgery. Disc lesions with T1 and T2 abnormalities need to be seen to opine on. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
