I have a meningioma. I heard that it can become cancer. Is that true? I have also been told that a DCA may be helpful — is there any reason I should be weary of trying it?


A small number of meningiomas can either transform, or may have atypical features that predispose them to be more aggressive. DCA refers to a radiation delivery technique. Its pros and cons versus other techniques such as IMSRT or GammaKnife are physics related. It would depend on where the meningioma is, the size, and proximity to critical structures.
