Default Colloid cyst

Can colloid cyst without hydrocephalus make it hard to walk, and dementia like symptoms. Also muscle weakness? Incontinence?

Welcome, btpolo5!

I found this:

Quote:
Colloid cysts are often asymptomatic and found incidentally during imaging tests.

If symptoms do occur, they typically include hydrocephalus and signs related to increased intracranial pressure, namely headaches that are most severe in the morning upon waking, nausea, vomiting, and blurry vision. Also, gait abnormality, changes in personality, memory loss, diplopia, papilledema, and drop attacks may occur.
"Gait abnormality" and "changes in personality" sound as if your some of your symptoms might be due to the cyst. The muscle weakness and incontinence might be due to something else.

The quotation is from Columbia University Irving Medical Center (Neurological Institute of New York):

Welcome to the Neurotalk Support Groups.

I can't help with your questions, I'm sorry, but I just wanted to tell you that there is a sub-forum here for Colloid Cyst.
You may find more information in the older threads/posts there.
