QUESTION: its choroid plexus cyst i hope to get the answer now

Answer
Hi, uzmeed,

Most choroid plexus cysts are benign, incidental findings that resolve over time or even if they don't, cause no problems.  They are a benign variant that are seen more since everyone does prenatal ultrasounds.  

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
