Thalamic brain neoplasm: What are our options?
My 28 year old daughter was just diagnosed with a lesion in her thalamus just a few days ago. We are trying to determine next steps. She will be discharged from the hospital today. The neurosurgeon is recommending treating with radiation even without a biopsy. We are trying to research other options and MUSC in Charleston, University of Miami, Duke Tisch Brain Tumor Center and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. She is leaning toward having a biopsy but trying to determine which program to contact and which direction to take. We are all devastated at this point. Appreciate any advice. Thank you.
