Confused Colloid Cyst

I was disagnosed back in December 2006 with a colloid cyst of the third ventricle. I have been to see my neurosurgeon several times (once a year) since I had my first seizure due to the cyst. My question is this; if it doesn't change in size and I'm doing "great" according to him, then why is it that I am still getting these god-awful headaches and stabbing pains behind my eye?

If you scroll down in the forum,you will find various posts,and threads where people are talking about things like this.

I wish that I could help you,but I don't know anything about cysts. I'm sorry that you are having pain with it. Brokenfriend

LI have gone the surgery and symptoms of a colloid cyst and can tell you that they will not get any better with the passage of time. I recommend that you get a different neursugreon and fast. These are not tumors that can be fooled around with!!!
