← Return to SRS (Stereotactic Radiosurgery) for a benign schwannoma?

I have multiple spots and 3 brain lesions. My oncologist recommends WBRT but I’m inclined to trying SRS. Radiologists and brain surgeons say that it is quite risky because they can miss a few spots, risking that new lesions pop up. I appreciate any similar circumstances to help me with this difficult decision. Also what are the SEs of WBR and SRS (10 sessions recommended if we opt for SRS).

Hi, @nab – since you were talking about stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), I moved your post here where others have been talking about the same subject. Hoping @janoh and @mrser52 will join this discussion and offer some pros and cons for doing SRS. @merpreb @dreamintwilight and @IndianaScott also may have some thoughts for you.

Did your doctor offer you reasons for recommending the whole brain radiotherapy? If so, what did he or she say?
