- Question: I have just learned I have a Pineal cyst and have been referred to a neurosurgeon from my neuroligist. This is new to me. What can I expect?
Ask your physician what type of evaluation will be done. Is there a tumor
attached to the cyst? Will they order blood tests for a germinoma or other
tumors associated with cysts? Is it just a cyst without any other
associations? See www.virtualtrials.com and www.survivingbraincancer.com
