What medication is suggested for grade 3 brain tumor?

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.

Hello,

A person with such type of tumor may live for more than 15 years. Anyway, it depends on his body reaction to the chemotherapy and radiotherapy and the type of tumor cells.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist

What are the symptoms for a brain tumor or spinal meningitis? My head is numb, feels like it will explode at times, and sometimes I have problems with focusing my eyes. Any correlation? I recently had a hospital visit because my esophagus was causing chest pains. This was going on for about 2 weeks. I was given medication to numb my esophagus and I’m taking Pepcid AC. I’m taking that along with Mucenix for a Cold. Thanks. Richard

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?
