My doctor told me that finding a cyst in the babies brain this early was normal: Thoughts?

Please post anonymously! My question is, has any mom has been told during their anatomy scan while pregnant that they saw a cyst in babies’ brains? The doctor told me it’s very common to see this at this stage, and more than likely, it will go away, but I’m freaking out !!! Please post for me thank you so much

My daughter just went through this with her current pregnancy. The cyst went away and as a precaution they did genetic blood work. Try not to worry!

This happened to my son on my 20-week ultrasound. My son was perfectly fine, and it was gone on the next ultrasound. I also panicked and was so scared. Just keep your head up and try not to worry. I know how hard it can be. :heart::heart::heart:

Yes. All 4 of my kids had cysts on their brain at 20 week scan. First time they checked to make sure it was nothing more… as we kept having kids they said it’s normal and all my kids are perfect and healthy with no cysts. It is def scary first time though.

Happened with my son, he had one on his brain and one on his right kidney. The one on his brain went away before birth and the one on his kidney idk about. His pediatrician told me if he’s urinating normal he’s good. So completely normal!!

My mom always told me I had a cyst the size of a tennis ball (!) On my brain at her 7 month scan. And kidney cysts. She was ultrasounded every week until I was born. They said I’d be born severely mentally handicapped and would never walk and probably wouldn’t live to see 3 years old. Here I am, I’m 28 and have 3 kids of my own. Everything went away on her last scan before I was born.

My son had cysts in his brain at 18 weeks and they were gone at 22 weeks when we did his echo on his heart. He is now 14 months old and completely healthy!

My daughter had a cyst in her brain on our anatomy scan at 19 weeks. He said it would probably go away and if not we would talk about it before delivery. I got a kidney infection at 24 weeks and they did an ultrasound. It was gone :slight_smile:

I have not gone through this but I just gotta post that I love this page for this reason! While we are not doctors, hearing people that have gone through something similar can help us sleep at night. You’re all amazing for bringing some peace and hope to other mamas. Being a mom is scary and it’s hard.

this just happened to me! at my 17 week 3 day scan they found what they called a bubble. My doctor was actually really mad that they even told me because they almost always go away around 20 weeks. I was a mess and freaking out…sure enough went back 4 weeks later and it was totally gone.

Yes! I was told this when I was pregnant with my daughter and they sent me to a specialist. When I got there they didn’t find anything! Don’t worry

My son never had one on his ultrasound but he is 4years old almost 5 and has been living with one for almost 4 years and is healthy. They said surgery may be an option if the cyst grows faster than his brain but has not yet. I go once a year to get an mri for him to check on it

One of my 3 babies had this. They did another ultrasound when I was further along and it was gone. He is a happy healthy 5 year old now :blush:

My daughter had two. They were gone before she was born.
