I need your help...
My neighbor had a MRI on her brain a week ago and the scan showed Arachnoid cyst in her brain. How dangerous is this? Is it cancerous ? Can it be reason for stroke ? I've read something on the net but I didn't understand anything. Can someone explain to me what is going on !!!!!

Arachnoid Cyst
it is not cancerous , though it causes local pressure symptoms and cause a rise in ICP (intracranial pressure) i.e. pressure inside the skull cavity
