Jun 4, 2016 · Need 2nd Opinion Fast in Brain Tumor

Thank you everyone. I am in Minneapolis. We reached out to the Mayo clinic and unfortunately we couldn’t get in for about 10 days – way to long to put off the surgery. We have learned in a short period of time that brain tumors are aggressive and grow very quickly. It appears I have had mine for a month and so they are pushing to get this taken out in the next few days. We so many people having cancer doctors are overwhelmed and it’s almost impossible to get an appointment with someone who has the credentials that you really want to perform this type of major surgery. I don’t want just anyone cracking my skull open but I might not have a choice at this point. It’s the worst feeling.

I need to find an expert that can give me a second opinion fast. They did an MRI yesterday and have a tumor in the right front lob about 3 centimeters. They wanted to do surgery right then and there. I was baffled because we don’t even know what kind of cancer I have. I also was diagnosed with lung cancer 2 weeks ago – and we don’t know what kind of cancer that is either. Before I have the surgery I want to find someone at Mayo that is an expert in removing brain tumors and I want them to look at my tests to see if I have time to monitor this of if I really need to have the surgery right now. I have no symptoms – would have never know anything was wrong with me. Can anyone get me a referral or have a doctor connect with us?
