@torino1qm If you wish to consider a second opinion from experts at Mayo Clinic, please call any of our 3 campuses, http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63. You will be offered an appointment within 48 hours Be sure to mention the Brain Tumor 48-access program. They can help you navigate your healthcare journey and answer your questions about treatment options.
How much is an appointment? I don’t have medical insurance.
Hi @dailychronicsupportgroup, You can get information about cost from the appointments department. Please call the contact number on this page http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63. You can talk to them about your medical history and options available at Mayo Clinic. It is our goal to provide the best care each patient needs. But as you know there are also travel costs, etc. We do not want to have you incur additional costs for evaluation or travel if the care we can offer is not different from what you’re already receiving.
Thank you for sharing
I am sorry about the passing of your grandmother. I was dx with a microadenoma about 10 years ago. Needless I was surprised and concerned about it. They found the tumor after I had fallen. They did an mri. I have been under a neurosurgeons care sinbce then and have had two mri,s. They showed no advancement as of two years ago. My dr has not recommended surgery so far. I have not been concerned about the tumor since the dx. However, I have fatigue, weigh 120 lbs. and somretimes experience blurriness. Also, I was treated for severe hyponatremia. I think it would be wise to take your advise and look for a tumor center. Thank yo
