Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,



It depends on her clinical situation. A spinal cord stroke can lead to paralysis, if not treated at the right time (as early as possible).



Regarding the hematologist, I agree with the doctor recommendation, as most of the time, spinal cord stroke is related to hematological disorders, which lead to increased risk for stroke.



Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.



Take care



Regards,

Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist

I am a 46 yo female. I had a CVA in 2006, 2007 an MRI showed 1 menegioma less than 1 cm. In 2010 another MRI showed that same Tumor at just over 2 cm and 2 more smaller ones in different areas. The 2 cm Tumor is in the left cerebellum attached to a major blood vessel. My symptoms are dizziness, some blurred vision, almost constant headaches and balance issues. I chose not to do radiation and now my Doctor wants me to have it surgically removed. What will happen if I do nothing since it is located there?
