Hi everyone
My 22 year old son, Ross was diagnosed recently with what they call ‘a type of Glioma’ in the left frontoparietal area.
From the MRI the Neurosurgeon and Oncologist say its benign and probably been there 10-20 years.
I dont really feel very happy not knowing the exact tumour type but they wont do a biopsy or operate as he has no symtpoms other than the odd seizure (now controlled on Lamictal).
Its ‘watch & wait’ – Its in an important part of the brain too.
I see their point but am worried that taking no action will eventually make matters worse. His next MRI is September (6 months on).
Is anyone else in this position?
