Just in time for Brain Tumor Awareness Month, I have a (positive) update on my own brain tumor (memingioma). In 2008 after an auto accident, I had a routine MRI. I was told I had another concussion and also had a brain tumor, meningioma, in my left frontal area of my brain. Hearing the news, I was extremely upset. Immediately, I went to the neurosurgeon who did my previous brain surgery. He said the tumor was small and would be slow growing. He also told me I would have to have a yearly MRI to keep watch of its growth.
