A subependymal nodule is a benign growth that develops and grows along the wall (ependymal lining) of the brain's lateral ventricles, the spaces that contain cerebrospinal fluid. While only 15 percent of SENs grow larger than 1 cm in diameter, those that do become classified as SEGAs and are cause for concern.
