research
"Colloid cysts are non cancerous (benign) congenital brain tumors. These cysts can be problematic because of their location and size. The tumors usually become symptomatic in adult patients ages 20-50 years."  www.patientslikeme.com

Wait...What?  Does that say brain tumor?  But didn't that er doc specifically tell me that it's NOT a tumor? 

'A colloid cyst is a cyst containing gelatinous material in the brain. It is almost always found just posterior to the foramen of Monro in the anterior aspect of the third ventricle, originating from the roof of the ventricle. Because of its location, it can cause obstructive hydrocephalus and increased intracranial pressure. These cysts account for approximately 1% of all intracranial tumors"  Wikipedia  

There's that word again 

Tumor 
Brain
Brain tumor
