  • Question: I HAVE A TUMOR IN THE BRAIN STEM OF 3CM IN ITS AXES CAUSED BY HISTOSYTOSIS. IS IT POSSIBLE TO REMOVE IT BY GAMMA KNIFE? PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR ADVICE BECAUSE MY MEDICAL CONDITION IS GETTING WORSE.
  • Answer:02/09/2010
    The options are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. You need to go to a major brain tumor center where they have lots of experience. This is a rare condition and most neurooncologists or neurosurgeons have seen less than 5 cases in their career. For questions to ask, see www.virtualtrials.com or www.survivingbraincancer.com chapters 2,3,5,6,7.
