Almost exactly 2 years ago my mother was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor brain tumor. It was sucessfully removed and she had been cancer-free since.
Today she had to go in for a follow up MRI (every 6 months)...and they found that the tumor is growing at an alarming rate. It's already 2/3's the size of the original one...this is all within a 6 month period of time.
Where she's had brain surgery already, they can't go back in that way again, so the only option is to try and shrink the tumor with an RF scalpel.
Unfortunately, I just don't have a really good feeling about this. And I have to break the news to my daughter somehow, just in the off chance something drastic happens in a very short amount of time.
This just turned into what's going to be the suckiest Christmas ever...shit.
