My 80 year old mother received this medical report from the Neurologist. I would like to know exactly what this means. He told my mother that it is a brain tumour but did not need any treatment as it was very slow growing, but we do not know how long she has already had this. She received this report after a MRI.

Many thanks for your help.

welcome to all probability she is having a low grade glioma which is a very slow growing brain neoplasm.Since she is 80 and the tumour is slow growing no active intervention can be done other than palliative measures like symptomatic relief.Take care.
