Fluid Filled Cyst w/ meningioma
Sun Jan 8, 2012 14:18

My Meningioma is in the sagital sinus. It was gamma knifed 4.5 years ago and has been slowly shrinking. I have yearly MRI checkups each December. This December they said I have a fluid filled cyst on or next to the meningioma. I can't remember if it was on or next to. I was kinda freaking out. They showed me that it was there last year too but was less than half the size it is now. The tumor board at University of Washington looked it over and said they wanted to check again in 6 months instead of a year.
Has anyone had this happen to them?
