Apr 7, 2012 · Brain Tumor in Brain & Nervous System

Hi Everybody,

I’m new here, so I hope I do this discussion right. I was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 3, last June. I had the chemo, mastectomy, and the radiation. I just completed the last of my treatments 8mo. ago. I’m 60 yrs. old, or somewhere around there.

Anyway, last week I went to the hospital because I couldn’t walk right, and my arms were a little weak. (I’m o.k. now) They did a MRI and told me I have a brain tumor. It’s a Meningioma, which is usually benign. But since I had breast cancer before, it probably could be bad. That’s what I’m doing here.

I need to find the best neurologist surgeon at the Mayo Clinic. I’m not even sure what kind of doctor I need. I had the MRI at Baptist, and they said not to worry, and to get another one in 3mo. Well I am worried!

It’s weird knowing that something is growing inside your head, that aren’t your brains! laugh. That’s ALL I can think about. Are you guys allowed to recommend, or talk about a certain doctor? I don’t know if I need to get another MRI now, wait, or what doctor to pick.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
