Choroid plexus cysts

At 17 weeks pregnancy my doctor saw the choroid plexus cysts and I went for blood tests, the tests were negative. Is it necesary to do an amnio?

There is a risk of chromosomal abnormalities if choroid plexus cysts are seen. This risk would be quite small if no other abnormalities are present. However, the only way to totally exclude it would be with an amnio.
