What does it mean when you have 2 brain tumors?

Postby leonardo » Wed Feb 22, 2012 5:24 am

Well my mother in law was diagnosed with a brain tumor on sunday. Its above her left ear.
She went into the city on monday to get more tests done. And well they found another brain tumor thats connected with the other one but this one goes right into the center of the brain. What does this mean? It is bad? Should we all be preparing for the worst?? She just went in for a biopsy an hour ago to determine if its cancer.. Were all so scared. :(

There are several different types of head tumor, some benign. Don't panic yet.

My mother in law was diagnosed with brain tumor too 2 years ago...(The pituitary gland is a pea-sized endocrine gland located at the base of the brain.) What they are doing for her is injecting her ever month to reduce the size of the tumor. It's getting smaller so, it might be despairing!

If there are two brian tumors then its likely the cancer came from another part of her body such as the lungs or bone.
Primary brain tumors that develop only in the brain and dont come from someplace else are nearly always on their own.
