I've been told i have cyst like structures pushing on my spine around t6 and t7. However, I have no symptoms. How dangerous is surgery for this condition?

Nothing. Just found out. Going for 2nd MRI with contrast next week.
Hard to give you an answer to your question based on this information
Do you have an MRI report that you could type into the window? This could be a variety of conditions, and I really can't be precise enough here to do any good to you. There are benign and malignant conditions.
please get back to me to discuss further. type in the report and I will return to reply. Dr Frank T.

I don't have an actual copy of the report - it was sent to my doctors, but not to me. A spine specialist has asked me to get a second MRI, with contrast, in order to better see what the situation is. I'll see if I can get a copy of that report.
hi. Yes, but I am sorry I cannot give you more specific information, I would need to know approx. location of the cystic lesions. Are they bone based, or within the spinal canal? let me know and I will give you an answer.
Ok. Thank you. I'll let you know.
