I just found out that I have a small (1.2 cm) frontal meningioma. I had a very large one surgically removed in 2011 (it was at the base of my skull, by my spinal cord, and about the size of a golf ball) I was told at that time that I should never have to worry about getting another so I did not have any MRIs after it was removed. A month ago I was having dizziness and other issues and one of the tests my doctor did was an MRI of my brain. That is when they found this new meningioma When I met with the Neurosurgeon today he told me it is quite rare to have another occur. From reading the information on this site it seems like it is not rare?
