Thank you for continuing to post, Norman. Could I ask how your wife's brain tumor was diagnosed? Was it by a traditional MRI of the brain or something else to see the basal ganglia?

Diagnosis was by MRI brain scan followed by a biopsy of the basal gaglia.The MRI was the result of how she presented in the first instance.She was having problems with vision,her hand writing had become very small and her memory impaired.She also tumbled downstairs at a friends home for no apparent reason or explanation which needed a visit to the neurologist.The small handwriting triggered the neurologist to obtain the MRI scan.
