Resolved Question:

Hi doctor, so I just got my mri test results they said no findings to do with my symptoms . They did mention that I had a clean mri besides an incendtaloma which I asked my doctor does that mean I have a mass he said no.. Can you verify ? I also have ready that on my sheet they gave me for my review on it says after the Mri it's a Arnold Chiari Type 1. Does that mean it's a tumor ? They referred me to a neurologist what is an incendentaloma ? If my mri was normal but with a incident finding that was an incidentaloma in my cerebellum what does that mean how can I have a normal mri with a finding ? Is it a tumor?!! They said no mass ... But if there wasn't a mass how could they tell? What is a Arnold Chiari am I at risk of dying sooner than a normal life span ? I'm confused as how I can have a clean MRI but yet they said there was an incendentaloma yet my primary care doctor says that it is not a mass . What does that mean? They said no tumor but yet an incendtaloma means tumor correct ? Once again they said no mass or brain tumor .. I'm really confused by this all. Also I am 20 years old patientold and with an Arnold chiari type 1 does this mean it's fatal?

Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Incidentalomas are as the name suggests an extremely incidental benign swelling, which is present in the brain, without causing any symptoms. It could be a result of past infections, or because of other vascular problems.
This is nothing related to cancer and you should not worry.
The Arnold-Chiari malformation again is a vasculature disorder, and I request you to kindly upload the MRI reports for better correlation. I can assure you, it is not fatal.
Feel free to discuss further.
