Jun 24, 2016 · Meningioma - I'm scared to watch and wait in Brain Tumor

I have a large supposedly benign meningioma that is frontal lobe size betwwen golf ball and tennis ball 2mm away from eyesight Olfactory groove they think. Since i have no sense of smell. It was found by accident when out of i had a major seizure 2years ago. I know how it feels to watch and wait. I have major anxiety about it and have been verydepressd over this time. Just had my latest mri and it has grown a little 2-3 mm. Since last year. My neurosurgeon has now said i should have surgery. I am glad to see i can get a copy of my mri and send to mayo clini with $100.00 to make sure i am getting the best doctor, hospital for this large tumor he now says that he might not be able to take all of it, yet has to come out since it is now growing…Feeling better I guess since im not going to watch and wait,,,,, Yet, very nervous aboht btain surgery and sure my insurance doesnt cover any other hospitals..Probably.
