My baby has a choroid plexus cyst: Advice?

So I found out at my 20-week ultrasound that my baby has a choroid plexus cyst. They really wouldn’t go into detail but said that she would be fine, but I’m still terrified. My first daughter didn’t have that, and I’m freaking out. Has anyone else been in this predicament, and the baby be okay???

No need to freak out. A quick google search says that baby’s born with these type of cysts are healthy.

I had the same thing at my 20week ultrasound and it was my third baby!! I freaked out too but doing more research realized how common they are! He is 100% healthy!!!:blush:

I am 30 weeks and currently going through the same problem but my doctor told me most times the cyst will heal as the pregnancy continues

My son who is now 14 had 20 on one side of his brain and 18 on the other side. They wanted to deliver him at 20 weeks and I said no. He was born perfectly health and weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce. I’m sure they will do another ultrasound and keep you updated if there is anything you need to worry about. Good luck and congratulations on the soon to be new baby!

I didn’t have that type of cyst but my son had a cyst on the umbilical cord 20wks. We went back 2wks later and it was gone. My dr told me normally cyst will clear up on their own.

CPCs can resolve on their own. My doctors recommend a repeat ultrasound around 28 weeks. Or if the patient wants to do screening like maternal quad screen or cell free DNA.

:pray:t2::pray:t2::pray:t2:prayers for you. And your baby. Everything will be ok.

My daughter had them but they were completely resolved by the time I saw the specialist. He said it was fairly common but she was fine.

I’m sending prayers your way.

I wish her & you well with it
