hello there.
a arachnoid cyst is something that's filled with CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid).
so there is a pressure created. therefore the mode of treatment would be to relieve the pressure.
medical line of treatment usually consists of giving medicines to control the symptoms. but surgical treatment actually treats the root cause.
the surgery aims at decompression.
consult a neurosurgeon for further help.
regards
