I have a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst last known 1.7x 1.6x3cm severe headaches, "pressure" in head epilepsy memory loss confusion&others. Related?

We usually think not: However, there are cases where arachnoid cysts cause symptoms such as headaches and other types of both motor, & cognitive problems which get better when the cyst is removed. But that doesn't happen often. Usually, they're benign & have been there since birth. They don't need to be removed unless testing/examination suggests otherwise. If you'd like a 1-1 consult please let me know. ...Read more

It may need antibiotics now to treat. ...Read more

I have a previously diagnosed cyst on my head. Recently scabs have developed around it and I'm not sure why. Is this cause for concern?

Depends: It is likely a sebaceous or epidermal inclusion cyst. Such cysts can rupture into the tissue or to the outside. It the cyst gets infected it could lead to complications. Have you considered getting it removed. It could probably be removed under local anesthesia.
