Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety...nothing much to worry for incidental finding of rathke cleft can be left like that without intervention if it's not bothering you... If it's growing in size and compressing structures surrounding that then intervention is necessary....there are no medicines to cure it only way is surgery... Consult nearest neurosurgeon he will guide you further.
