What is the survival period of a anaplastic oligodendroglioma patient after total resection followed by radiation and chemotherapy?
• What is the growth rate of a large foramen magnum meningioma? Is is likely to have been growing for 30 years and not be symptomatic? It grew from the base of the skull, encased the arteries and then grew over to press on the brain stem. It became symptomatic at that point. Could that have taken 30 or more years? • Is it possible for a GBM (left parietal lobe) to exhibit growth bilaterally? • I am 16 years old and on July 4, 2002, I was in a car crash and I hit my head really hard against the window. Ever since then, I have been getting really bad headaches that make me dizzy or, even worse, almost blind. The pain is so intense that I cannot concentrate. The wierd thing about this is that, when I get the really bad headaches, it feels like my brain is swelling and that there is no room in my head for my brain. It just pounds against my head. I read this book about a girl who had a brain tumor and now I am scared. I have seen doctors but they said it was nothing. It keeps gettin worse.
