It’s cyst, not sist, and yes, that can be bad. There’s an article by a guy with a brain cyst here, if you want to read about it:

cyst aren’t necessarily bad
but finding one on the pineal must have been difficult since that gland is the smallest in the body
i’m curious how it was detected !!!!

i found this for you:
A pineal gland cyst is a cyst in the pineal gland, a small endocrine gland in the brain.. Statisically, these fluid-filled bodies appear on 1-4% of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans. They are in most cases asymptomatic, and it is rare for a pineal cyst to cause symptoms. If they do, these would most likely be headache, visual disturbances, or hydrocephalus, which can be extremely dangerous if left untreated. Pineal cysts are not cancer and most of the time they do not enlarge over 2 centimeters.
Asymptomatic cysts require no treatment. Some doctors choose to monitor patients with CT scans or MRI to look for cyst growth, but most doctors do not{{fact|date=June 2007)).
