I am new to this board. My husband is a stage 4 melanoma patient. He has been in a clinical trial for a MEK inhibitor for over 2 1/2 years, which has worked for him. He had a check up and CT (chet & abdomen) yesterday as well as an ECG. On the way home he had an episode of memory loss and disorientation. I call his doctor regarding this issue and was told to take him to a local ER for evaluation. Tonight he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which we assume is metastatic melanoma. We are devastated. He has an MRI tomorrow. What options are available for a large 2 cm X 3 cm lesion??? I know that his life expectancy is greatly diminished...12-17 weeks. Has anyone had any experience with large brain mets???
