Thank you to anyone reading this. I have a 2.6cm mass growth on my right thalamas for the last 2.5 years. The neurosurgeon thought it was a low grade glioma and scheduled me for surgery. When he got to the site he could not see any tumor. Biopsy was taken in 3 places according to mapping software and instant path came back non malignant. Long term path the same. no mass effect of cells or odd shapes. Nothing was removed. long term path not malignant and inconclusive for anything else. One doctor suggested it may be degenerative disease but a neurologist did a full blood genetic workup and found nothing, so in his opinion its a tumor. The are now arguing whether it is a tumor or not and one doctor has suggested chemotherapy and I have no idea why. no one suggested radiation. it has not been named or staged. what should I do. could it possibly inflammation and not a tumor has anyone has simuliar experience? symptoms are pretty severe burning in left leg. no headache or seizure. not on any medication at moment.
