Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand the discomfort you are facing on account of the head tumour.

However, the good point here is that it seems to be a benign (not cancer) tumour, which has a better outcome as compared to cancerous tumours.

The most likely cause here is meningioma, a tumour that arises from meninges.

I realize that the surgery is risky, however, a good neurosurgeon would take all the required precautions to ensure your safety.

I hope that your surgery would be successful and your health would be back to normal.

Best wishes,
