I was just diagnosed with a congenital retrocerebellar cyst dorsal to the lower cerebellar vermis, which the radiologist believed is benign, however, I wanted to get a second opinion. You can view the results here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/102779448@N08/ . I am a female in my twenties experiencing issues with balance, short-term memory, concentration, depth-perception, navigation, and hand-eye coordination. Over the past few years, I have become afflicted with periods of uncontrollable laughter--when something is not funny, I may start laughing and be unable to stop for many minutes. I don't just chuckle, but I laugh to the point of crying, and anything can provoke this. My neurologist was concerned and ordered an MRI. As a layperson, I have included what I believe to be the cyst (I did not meet face-to-face with the radiologist or neurologist, so I do not know for certain), as well as a few other images which have what appear to be cysts, but were not noted by the neurologist or radiologist. Should I be concerned about these formations?
