What happens if tumor in left cerebellum attached to blood vessel is not removed?

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?

Hello,

The tumor may continue to grow in size, causing more severe symptoms such as severe headache, imbalance, dizziness, vomiting, etc. In some cases, patients can go into coma also, if there is bleeding in the tumor.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist

I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING DIZZINESS AND NAUSEA FOR A YEAR NOW. I HAVE HAD 3 DIAGNOSES, ALL TO DO WITH THE INNER EAR.I HAVE HAD THE EPLEY MANOUVRE AND EXCERCISES FOR LABRYNTHITIS, BUT IT HAS NOT HELPED..I HAD AN MRI SCAN OF MY HEAD, MIGRAINE WAS SUSPECTED, BUT INSTEAD IT SHOWED A MENINGIOMA ON THE CEREBELLUM PONINE ANGLE AREA. IT IS 13 MM, AND I WAS TOLD BECAUSE IT IS SMALL, THAT IT WOULD NOT BE CAUSING MY DIZZY SYMPTOMS. I THINK IT PROBABLY IS THE TUMOR, AS THEY CAN T SEEM TO FIND A CLEAR DIAGNOSIS. WHAT DO YOU THINK.

Hello, my son is 37 years of age and just got out of surgery today. He has a brain tumor. They took most of it out but some is still there. They have only gotten a partial report back from the pathology report saying it is a Grade 3 tumor and that he will have to have treatments. They have not gotten the full report back yet. My question is, how long can someone live with this type and grade tumor. right now it has affected his memory skills and a little of his sight.
