I do recommend you to undergo cyberknife radiosurgery if the facility is available. it is blood less surgery.and the doc will not cut open the ear to remove the tumor.but the procedure is costly.

Hello I have been sick for a month with either an inner ear infection or hepatitis A and I have been lightheaded, slight nauseous, and have had a slight headache for 28 days now and I was just wondering If you can get lightheaded/dizzy with hepatitis A? I m sensitive to light and sound and any kind of fast moving commercials make me start to feel lightheaded/dizzy/nauseous.

My father has malignant melanoma and has recently undergone the gamma knife for his brain mets. Today he woke up with multiple blueish black lesions on the skin under the arm that he originally had surgery on for the infected lymph nodes 18 months ago.
