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.

Hi!
welcome to healthcraemagic.com.In 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.

My MRI of the brain findings read: generalized volume loss is demonstrated with prominence of the sulci, most prominently at the convexity. Otherwise, the basilar cisterns, ventricles, and sulci are unremarkable. Focal and confluent areas of hyperintense T2/FLAIR signal are seen in the pericentricular deep and subcortical white matter that are nonspecific in nature and could be related to microvascular disease; however, other etiologies cannot be excluded. I can see 2 and one half Dawson s fingers perpendicular to the corpus callosum. Do I have MS?
