I have a posterior fossa Cyst in my brain.

I had a MRI with contrast, which detected a posterior fossa Cyst, the doctors have told me that i require surgery due to the location and size. These kind of cysts i am told are benign. Are there any instances when patients are told they have a benign cyst and it turns out to have cancerous cells after the examine it in the lab?
