I am a cancer patient . A tumour is suspected in my left optic nerve or in the brain frontal lobe(in the cerebral region ) near tha area where optic nerve originates .I had two MRI's .One suggested that it could be pilocytic Astrocytoma and the other mri suggested it could be glial neoplasm .
Now they(Dr's) asking me to get admitted and have a biopsy which would make the situaltion clear.Although it loooks like a benign tumour.If the tumour is found to be from brain it could be totally removed or if it is from optic nerve ,a part of it can be removed .
I think in such a case i have a high risk of me loosing my vision ? What so u ppl suggest should i wait or get operated as soon as possible .
Please do post ur suggestions on my mail id as well as it may not be possible for me to look at the posts here .My mail id is firstname.lastname@example.org
I am really worried .Plz help me .I am a software engineer .My age is 26 and i would also want to know how long i would be required to have a rest in case i get a brain operation done to remove tumour?
