Thanks for the query

With the limited information, I would like to say that (with due respect to your physician) there is no role of prophylactic anticonvulsants; I mean if there is no history of seizures, levepil is not required.

A neurological as well as medical evaluation will be required. The outcome will depend upon the exact histopathological diagnosis.

The treatment options depend upon the diagnosis. Options may include radiation, chemotherapy etc.

Please visit a medical center with multidisciplinary facility and get evaluated

Please get back to me if you have any concerns and be detailed.

Best wishes
