My brother had a seizure (Epileptic attack) while driving and got into a car accident.
My brother has been healthy and has shown no signs of illness what-so-ever.
They did further tests and found a large tumor about the size of a hand above his right ear.
He had an operation done and the doctor was able to take most of the tumor out. Unfortunately, we have received the testing results and he is diagnosed with cancer. Grade III: Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma.
He is only 34 years old and I have no idea how to cope with this bad news. We don't know for how long he will live with this problem.
He will be getting chemotherapy or radiotherapy very soon. He is also on medication to control the seizures.
What should we expect from all these treatments? Will he be able to live a healthy life afterwards!?
I am so scared and me and my family do not have much knowledge on brain tumors.
Can anyone give me information on this typical tumor? Any help will be greatly appreciated !
Thank you for your time,
