Pineal Cyst growth: in 2011 9mm pineal cyst putting pressure on tectal plate. In 2016, MRI says same cyst 20mm flattening tectal plate. Concern?

In brief: Here we go again

Presumably you didn't just wander into an MRI facility & made an impulse purchase.
Your doctor ordered the MRIs, & for a reason. The MRIs aren't the pt; you are. The doc who ordered the MRIs & knows YOU AS A WHOLE PERSON is ethically obligated to interpret the significance of the MRIs; or if (s)he can't, to find someone who can. You have a right to an explanation in terms you can understand.
