Meningioma left parietal lobe

Hi all! I have a meningioma in the left parietal lobe. I have been on watch and wait scans for the last few years. My tumour seems to grow 1-2mm per year and is now 3cm. I was wondering how large tumours are when they require surgery? I had a spinal cord tumour that was 2cm; this was removed last year.  I don’t have significant symptoms from the meningioma. Any thought would be much appreciated! 

  • Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I can't help with your question, as I have a different type of cancer, but I noticed that your post hasn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list where it'll be more easily seen.

    If you don't get any replies from the other members of the group you could post your question in the ask a nurse section of the online community and one of the specialist nurses will aim to reply within 3 working days. If this is something that you'd like to do, clicking on the link I've created will take you straight there.
