Brief Answer:
Please Upload the complete report

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms mentioned are non specific and can be present in any brain tumor.
The exact report is required to discuss the further management, operation and results.
She should be in contact with a neurosurgeon.

Please Upload any MRI report, if available, or a doctor's prescription describing the condition.
You can simply upload/attach them at the reports section, alternatively you can even e-mail them to YYYY@YYYY and keep the Subject as ATTN:Dr Neeraj Kumar and I'll receive them..

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Thank you for your opinion. I know she's had an MRI, they are doing more tests today and she is seeing a neurologist. So I should know more soon. If it's not operable, she says she won't take chemo, how long might she have w/o anymore info.

Brief Answer:
Need reports for true assessment

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Welcome back,

Prognosis depends upon type of cancer, number of lesions and brain area involved.
It also depends whether it is primary brain tumor or metastasis from other organ of body.

Some tumors are completely operable without any recurrence and some may have poor prognosis with all available treatment modalities.

Without reviewing report it's impossible to give a clear picture. You can upload them later on once you'll get access.

Let the tests be completed. Hopefully God will be with you and the lesion comes to be benign.
Wishing her best of luck.
