Oct 17, 2015 · Might have a brain tumor. Should I get a second opinion? in Brain Tumor

I had a ‘visual disturbance’ which precipitated the MRI. My doctor consulted with a neurologist, the radiologist and a neurosurgeon before getting back with me. The consensus is that they are not 100% sure of what is going on, but there is a very high probability i have a glioma. Main indication is 1.8×2.0cm in the occipital region with a leader to a smaller area in the thalmic region.

Hello. Well….I am 52 and found out yesterday that i have something going on in my brain…. The neurosurgeon wasn’t sure, but thought it looked like a Glioma from the MRI. He recommends an open biopsy ASAP to confirm and to allow him to visualize the area. Right now i am in the absorbing stage and looking for suggestions on whether to proceed with him, or immediately assume the worst and escalate to requesting an appointment at Mayo Clinic.
