Surgery or no surgery: possible low-grade glioma?
I was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. I have seen one specialist. He reports by looking at my MRI only that I have a low grade glioma that can be monitored or I can get a biopsy to know the specific kind of tumor it is. I can also get it removed with some chance of having permanent weakness to my left arm or left body. I do have an appointment for a second opinion and have opted to get the biopsy but am torn on wheather I should just have it removed. Anyone with the same diagnosis,how did you decide to have it removed or just live with a tumor?
