This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am a radiation oncology cancer doctor
what type of brain tumor in the pons?
has it been biopsied? most likely not.
what does the brain MRI scan think it is?
how much radiation therapy was used?
was chemotherapy given?
I need to know what type of cancer it was on biopsy
ask your doctors for copies of the pathology report to know what type of cancer it is
and copies of the brain MRI scan reports.
I would be happy to review them with you.
that information would be needed to know what the next step is.
perhaps chemotherapy may be useful to try to help shrink the tumor.
let me know if you have other questions.
