Symptoms of headaches that wake me at night, ringing in the ears, oddly pretty auras, internal left eye pain and worsening vision lead to an MRI with contrast that found a meningioma just left of center next to the large central vein. Both doctors agree it is most likely benign, but differ on treatment. Since I am symptomatic the first doctor says surgery would be in order. The second doctor says because it is relatively small and typical of a benign meningioma, that we should watch and wait, with repeated MRI’s. His reasoning is at 62, the surgery is riskier than the symptoms and the likelihood of cancer. I have read some other entries in this group and apparently the watch and wait approach is common. I have to admit though it scares me a lot to leave something in there that they don’t know 100% is non-cancerous, and frankly the symptoms are not fun. Someone mentioned in a post from 2016 that I can send my MRI results to the Mayo Tumor Center and get their opinion. I am extremely interested in doing this. Can someone please send me the contact information so I can arrange it? Meanwhile I am having a mammogram next week to rule out breast cancer that can be found in some meningiomas.
