A colloid cyst is a slow growing tumor that typically grows near the center of the brain. When large enough, the growth can put significant pressure on the brain and require immediate surgery to reduce the relatively high risk of sudden death.
Best in Care
The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by colloid cysts. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that identify tumors with immense accuracy. Using laser technology, endoscopes and 3-D brain mapping, our surgeons isolate the colloid cyst and preserve adjacent healthy tissue essential to body movement and speech. Recovery times are shorter, because no incision is made.
