Brief Answer:
Please upload the biopsy report and MRI SCAN.

Detailed Answer:
HI SIR,

I have read your query and understand your concern,

I strongly recommend you to get an MRI SCAN AT THE EARLIEST,since a delay in diagnoses can affect the prognosis in case of brain tumors.

Any brain tumor has to be clearly assessed regarding its histology and extent and location in the brain for designing the treatment protocol.

Any walking difficulty should be aggressively managed with MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM APPROACH.Eptoin alone will not help.

Your Current treatment plan is not heading in a right direction in my opinion.

I request you to upload the stereotactic biopsy report in your follow up query.

Thank you,
Awaiting your uploads.
