Thank you for the reply. That does give me some reassurance, believe it or not. Just to know someone else is leaving it alone. Mine I located in my temporal lobe adjacent to the sylvian fissure and the ruptured pieces are spread throughout but have not changed. I did meet a neurosurgeon from a hospital in Boston at a conference a couple of weeks ago that said he would probably lean towards taking it out but did say he is more aggressive with tumors and would just recommend another opinion. I don’t think either option is that comforting…leaving it in or brain surgery :/ Thanks for the reply!
