Avatar n tn They access your pineal region from beneath the brain, so they do not affect your brain at all. It sounds like a scary procedure but is actually straightforward for a good brain neurosurgeon. The surgeon essentially inserts a microscopic endoscope that magnifies the area by 50x and uses a navigation system to get him there. It is minimally invasive. The medical literature says that most patients whose pineal cysts are not too large (e.g., < 4.
Avatar f tn My 48 year old sister was diagnosed with a low grade small brain tumor yesterday, 3 May 2010. Up until a couple of days before she had shown no signs of illness. Infact shes the healthiest person I know. She doesnt smoke goes to the gym regularly and eats very healthily. The only stressful thing in her life is her job, which she loves, shes a headteacher/principal of a large school.
Avatar m tn operation for a person who has a fluid filled cyst on their brain stem? The purpose of this operation is to pop/drain the cyst as it is too risky to remove a cyst in this area of the brain. I'm wanting to know the liklihood of the cyst filling back up with fluid once drained.

Avatar f tn my cousin was rushed to hospital after a blackout (has had a benign operation removed 10 years ago) and the doctors found that she had another tumor so they scheduled her for an operation and removed the tumor which had grown back.... a shunt had been inserted and she later had a reaction to the shunt and so they operated again and put another one in.... when she recovered from that surgery she was not her usual self...
Avatar f tn Its been 4 months and I am still not well-at all. I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.
Avatar f tn - If this tumor on the optic nerve, is it can be seen by the MRI? and is it can be considered as a brain tumor? - What that kind of a brain tumor that causes to him such blindness? - What is the way of treatment to remove that tumor? surgery, radiation or chemotherapy? - If surgery is the way of treatment, how will it be done, through the eye or in the brain itself? - If the surgery in the brain, from which side the open will be, front, back or other? - How succsseful is that operation?
Avatar m tn ) and the loss of volume is some neuron death in the brain close to the tumor site. These things were not noted in pre-surgery MRI (Oct 08), but there could have been some difficulty in diagnosis as gliosis might shows up like a tumor on MRI with contrast. However the loss of volume might be more obvious in comparison of the pre and post-surgery MRI. Is it expected that gliosis and loss of volume be observed after brain surgery for tumor removal?
Avatar f tn Im sorry for not getting back to all of you I had a bad week. I was referred to a new Dr as mine was retiring and this Dr doesnt believe in Narcotics so I was taken off the vicodin--cold turkey. this Dr would not even give me enough to taper off. The only thing that works for the pain but what was worse was the withdrawls for 3 days. Needless to say I am seeing a new Dr this week.
2061097 tn?1331218916 has anyone had this problem, I have never talked to another person with this condition. I had an operation to remove the tumor in1971 and have been on medication since. I have had a few problems. Would like to hear from anyone that went through this operation.
Avatar m tn I just want to know whether there is a possibitlity of devoloping a brain tumor in da future because of the exposure to radiation. If so how oftenly do we have to check in order to diagnose it in it's early stages.

Avatar n tn If someone helps me to remove completely brain tumor of my elder sister or help me to guide where i will go to remove complete brain tumor with out operation just like laser thrapy. Please help me i need many guidance. PLZ>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
Avatar n tn I saw the main neurosurgeon from that hospital and he told me that he would do the initial operation but the tumor was so large he didn't want to. He actually told me to find another Dr. I am at my whits end. I'm 41 years old and I can't even drive my kids to school. I have been reading about Trepanation but with my luck of late I would foul that up. Typing this letter has me in so much pain that I am taking some pain meds and curling up in a ball and going to sleep.
Avatar n tn Hi Mrs. Ricardo, Maybe that Neurontin that Pisces reported would help you. Thanks too for your feedback on the pain issue. By the way, I came across a note this morning I made that said either the title or the subtitle to the book you provided about the doctor that had a brain tumor is "I had brain surgery, what's your excuse," I think it said, becuz naturally now I cannot find the note, which is part of MY disability situation.
Avatar m tn My Mother was recently detected with Brain Tumor, the doctors said she had to be operated and thy operated her on 12th of December, It is malignant. The following was the report from the HOspital: FINAL DIAGNOSIS: RIGHT TEMPOROP ARIET AL GBM.

Avatar n tn He has had some brain imaging that revealed a chronic bleed with in the left frontal region without edema. There is no hypermetabolic area of the brain to active tumor growth per the PET scan and his carotid doppler was unremarkable. Although your neurosurgeon may have explained some of the following already, please allow me to elaborate on some of my thoughts.
Avatar n tn So can CSF. An astrocytoma is not a pineal cyst at all - that is a low grade (grade 1) brain tumor so it just happened to be located by the pineal gland. This is from a brain tumor site: "Astrocytomas are tumors that arise from astrocytes—star-shaped cells that make up the “glue-like” or supportive tissue of the brain. These tumors are “graded” on a scale from I to IV based on how normal or abnormal the cells look. There are low-grade astrocytomas and high-grade astrocytomas.
Avatar n tn She describes pre-vomiting moments as being taken over by a compulsive force, believes it is a psychosomatic stress reliever, but I am beginning to question if she hasn't a benign brain tumor. I need to know my facts, since she is married and independent, before I interfere and am dismissed as "over-anxious mama." Please advise. Thank you.

Avatar n tn My son (27 years old) has a brain tumor (astrocytome, grade 4). He has already been operated twice. After the second operation he was given radiotherapy, but he received no chemotherapy. He has been hospiltalized several times in addition because of complaints of sensory disturbances, dizzyness, seizures and lack of ability to maintain food after meals (throwing up almost everything).
Avatar f tn I don't know what will be happening, especially if it is something else, such as a brain tumor. I'm worried about this issue a bit, and am just wondering what happens if it's found out to be a cyst and it's fairly serious. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hi, My partner has just had an operation to remove a stage 2 tumor from his left side frontal lobe. Although he has had this surgery twice before without complication, this one was different. He is currently 2 days post-op and cannot move his right leg at all, very minimal movement in his right arm (can squeeze fingers but not move joints). He says he can feel normally when touched. The doctors are all saying different things. I want to know if it is likely he will recover fully?
487086 tn?1208819702 Hi, I have been diagnosed as having an arachnoid cyst tumor on my front temporal lobe behind my right eye, I had a nuerologist up until Nov 6th, 2007, I am now due to my insurance having to go to the local clinic to even get my seizure medication, which is what I get due to this arachnoid cyst, along with the worst headaches I have ever had in my life. Now, my question is what do i do , who do i see, and do I just have to live with this nightmare the rest of my life? thanks for your time..

Avatar m tn Surgery was very successful with 100% removal of the tumor. I have a minor area of reduced vision in a portion of the lower right quadrant that seems to be possibly recovering to some minor extent since the operation but is not a serious problem for me at present as my peripheral vision is OK and my central 15 degrees is OK. I had a baseline MRI recently ( 5 months after the surgery). The report states -: - No residual or recurrent tumor noted - Superior saggital sinus remains paten.
