Sep 2, 2017 · Meningioma - I'm scared to watch and wait in Brain Tumor

Eleanor, don’t feel that you are alone. I am also a senior and was recently diagnosed with a Meningioma in the right frontal lobe. First MRI revealed a small 5 cm tumor. I have been told to” watch and wait “and am not satisfied with that answer. I am a retired veteran and will see a Neurologist at the VA next week. Depending upon what I am told, I will go from there. I am also a retired medical professional. Yet, this diagnosis is frightening to me as well. Hang in there and we will get through this together.
