Thank you for posting this query.

The scar tissue in the brain is the result of past head injury. The cyst is also related to that. These would not pose any health hazards or problems in the future. Also, there is no chance of it becoming cancerous.

Only in some cases, fits (seizures) may occur as a result of scar tissue.

Best wishes,
