I'm curious to find out what is considered to be large as far as mets on the brain. My Mother-in-law has 7, the largest being approx 1cm. She was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer that has met to brain, liver and nyods. Upon discovering the brain mets they started WB radiation within 2 days along with steroids. They told her at that time that she was 3-4 days from having a stroke. I can't seem to find anything on line that helps me with knowing what we're up against as far as the brain situation.
