  • Question: My son, 7 years old, has fainted twice. In searching for an answer, they found a pituitary cyst that they said was borderline "something" that means close to the spine. They said this is not related to the fainting. I was wondering if it is possible they are related and, also, how they can tell the cyst is not a concern. Also, would they have seen if there was a tumor during his MRI/MRA without contrast? I just do not want to waste a doctor's time with a second opinion if all the information given so far is accurate.

    Fainting in a 7-year-old is very worrisome. It can have no cause or a type of seizure or many other things. I think it should be investigated to your satisfaction.
