First of all, I am so sorry you have to deal with this situation.

Second, Kudos to you for going in to see the doctor!! It sounds like they may have caught it early enough for positive results. Your doctor sounds terrific, not many like him around anymore these days.

You are in my prayers Mason.

Did your doctor give you an idea about time frame for treatment? I assume they are planning to do a surgical excision, and with complete margins no radiation or chemo would be needed? How big is the mass? Maybe they would try to shrink it, pre surgery, with chemo or radiation...

I guess it is good that these types of tumors don't tend to metastasize. If you do end up with a metal plate, you'll be able to hold up the lines at the airport.

You're in my thoughts, keep us posted!

Well he hasn't gone into details with me yet, but from what he said they'll probably just cut out the affected bone and tissue. It isn't very deep at all so it probably will be a pretty simple thing.

I hope the treatment is a simple as you make it sound, although surgery on your brain sounds very serious no matter HOW simple it really is!

I'll be thinking of you!

As a member of my family, I will keep you in my prayers constantly and hope that you have an easy time with this. It's early, you have a good doctor and you have a positive attitude so you WILL fight and you WILL win!

Keep us in the know please.

Hugs to you my friend.

The old guy across the street lived 10 years with brain cancer and still managed to get out everyday. He'd take a drive, walk up to the store, pick up every flipping leaf on his lawn, sweep his driveway, yell at his cats, and gripe about my dogs. Everyday. I hope you will be the same
