What is a Colloid Cyst?
A Colloid Cyst is a non-malignant, fluid-filled mass that typically develops in or around the anterior third ventricle of the brain. The cyst is filled with a proteinaceous fluid that consists of mucin, old blood, cholesterol, and ions. Colloid cysts can obstruct the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid. These account for 15 to 20 percent of all cysts that develop within the ventricles. Colloid cysts are very rare, comprising only about 2 percent of all brain-originating tumors. They primarily affect adults, especially those in their 40s and 50s.
What are the symptoms of Colloid Cysts?
A person with a Colloid Cyst typically does not experience any noticeable symptoms, and these generally tend to develop when intracranial pressure increases due to the disrupted flow of cerebrospinal fluids. Common symptoms that may be experienced include:
Headaches that worsen in the morning
Nausea and vomiting
Changes in behavior and personality
Diplopia or double vision
What are the causes of Colloid Cysts?
The underlying cause of Colloid Cysts is not known; however, it is believed that they begin developing during embryonic development.
How are Colloid Cysts diagnosed?
Colloid Cysts are generally diagnosed using detailed imaging modalities, which include:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Computed Tomography (CT scan)
How are Colloid Cysts treated at IBS Hospital?
At IBS Hospital, some of the common treatment options available for Colloid Cysts include:
Drainage of cerebrospinal fluid to relieve intracranial pressure.
Surgical removal of the cyst, either by neuro-endoscopy or by using advanced microsurgical techniques.
