Best Answer

Every surgery carries risk with it. Surgery on the head would be even riskier. However, if surgery is indicated, it's probably a better option than not having it. Be sure to get a second opinion before any major medical procedure. Doctors aren't gods; they're just guys doing work. The above is true and especially the brain, but leave the worrying up to the surgeon because that's what he/she is being paid for and a good prayer or two never hurt. Usually brain surgery is quite successful.

Can you die by a cyst on your brain?

It is possible for you to eventually die of a cyst in the brain. The brain is enclosed in a solid envelope of bone (the skull), so there is no room for a cyst to grow without compressing the brain. As the cyst grows, there is less room for the brain and eventually this may become fatal. However, if the cyst doesn't grow, it is possible you could live a normal life with it.
