Thankyou to everyone who have been so kind to reply
My consult with surgeon answered my questions
We have no accurate diagnosis because the tumour is so small and has no significant characteristics
Surgery will go ahead 7 Jan.
On my original MRI a lesion in my tectal plate was found in addition to lesion on optic nerve
Anyone had experience with a tectal plate lesion. At this stage we are monitoring it and if effects are noticed radiation is the only option.
But for the grace of God go I.
