My 9 yr old daughter has sufferend from migraines and motion sickness all her life. When her aunt had to have surgery to remove a cyst, our doctor ordered an MRI> We got the results today. She has the same cyst. The doctor is sending us to a Nuerologist where he said they will probably just keep an eye on it to see if it grows, like her aunt's did.

Does anyone know of any books on brain cysts or anything of the kind. I have tried researching on line, but am not coming up with anything. My sister inlaw learned of her cyst when it grew and was affecting her periferal vision. They said she probably had it since she was born. So I am not worried that this is a life threatening problem. I just want more information. We cant get into the nuerologist for 3 months and I dont want to wait that long.

Thanks for any help.
