I was wondering if anyone had any info in skull mets? I'm mostly just curious as to what the side effects of having mets to the skull are? I couldnt find much info when I googled it.  Thank you!

brain mets can manifest as nothing, memory trouble, incontinence, hallucinations, severe and debilitating headaches, night terrors, perception problems, ghost pains, mentation deficiencies, language problems and more Depending on the location of the met.  If it is in the part of the brain that controls the heart and Lungs there are more issues.  Ahorrible as WBR sounds I will have it if I need to but I will insist on gamma knife first.
