My son was diagnosis with chiari malformation and a 6mm cyst. Is this dangerous at least the cyst part? He's 9 yrs old, should he have any surgery pleasehelp
I'm not sure. The cyst- are we speaking of a malformation in the spinal cord like a syrinx or some other type of cyst? If you can find out, i'll be very happy to help you. Many cysts are benign and easy to leave alone. It does matter on location.
