Hi Mark. I’m sorry to learn of your diagnosis. I wouldn’t try wondering how big your tumor is. I would make sure that you picked the absolute best doctor and read up on the best ways to treat it. Try to be as knowledgeable as your doc. Some doctors can be cocky and arrogant. Keep them on their toes and push them to be better than they already are.
I was diagnosed with a benign brain stem glioma when I was 11, in 1985. Although I have numerous side-effects, I realize now that my parents picked the best doctor. I started this site because there wasn’t any support for those diagnosed with benign brain tumors then and many people still don’t understand that “benign” in the brain is serious. You can count on us for support.
