Hello,

I have read your medical history in detail.
A frontal intracranial lesion (infiltrating) with seizures in a case of stage 2 a breast cancer / kidney stones with growing frontal lesion (? gliosis).
I suggest you these:

1. Take a second opinion on biopsy slides, to reconfirm that there are no malignant cells as ruling out a GLIOBLASTOMA/ METASTATIC lesion is very important.

2. If no conclusion on biopsy is made, you may go for REPEAT high tesla MRI BRAIN with MR SPECTROSCOPY to confirm that it is gliosis & nothing else.

3 seizures can be controlled with anticonvulsant medication

4 keep a close watch on size of lesions with repeat MRI BRAIN, may be every three months, if it increases in size, may be another surgery/biopsy may be needed.

Thanks
