Sat, Feb 15 4:33am · SRS (Stereotactic Radiosurgery) for a benign schwannoma? in Brain Tumor

Thanks Lisa. They are afraid that new lesions could pop up from the multiple spots. I want some quality of life but am weary of the risks of some spots not appearing on the MRI.

I have multiple spots and 3 brain lesions. My oncologist recommends WBRT but I’m inclined to trying SRS. Radiologists and brain surgeons say that it is quite risky because they can miss a few spots, risking that new lesions pop up. I appreciate any similar circumstances to help me with this difficult decision. Also what are the SEs of WBR and SRS (10 sessions recommended if we opt for SRS).

Fri, Jan 3 7:37am · Metastatic Breast Cancer: Whole brain radiation side effects in Breast Cancer

Happy new year to everyone. I have metastatic breast cancer and we have discovered brain tumours and spots all over the brain. My oncologist says that I will probably need whole brain radiation. Has anyone undergone this? What is there to expect and what are the side effects?
