I am a 24 year old female who had an MRI done for sudden hearing loss in the right ear. The only thing they noted on the report was an 8.8 mm Choroid Plexus Papilloma in the left lateral ventricle. Appears to be at the junction of the anterior horn of the left lateral ventricle and body of the left lateral ventricle. No evidence of ventricular enlargement. I have googled these terms and am still confused on some of it. if anyone has some insight I would be eternally grateful. This is scaring me a little bit. I see the ENT who ordered the test on Thursday.
Since you have already read about these, you know that they are a benign tumor that usually shows up in the ventricles of the brain. They very rarely transform into a malignant process.
However, even if a process is benign, it can still cause some problems. The main one with CPP is that it grows to a size to put pressure on the surrounding brain tissue, or that it causes disruption of the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through out the brain.
In these cases the tumor usually has to be surgically removed.
Discuss the finding with your surgeon the next time you see him/her. Try not to worry TOO much. It is a benign process. Discuss all of your options with the surgeon. Good luck.
