  • Question: I have recurrent meningioma, in the parietal lobe (grade 3), partly excised for the third time, am awaiting radiotherapy (post surgery), and very nervous about long term side effects. Will it be worth going through the therapy, and could it give me a few good years, or will it increase my chance of getting further cancers?

    The data suggests that you will have a much greater benefit of longer years than the risk of a second cancer. Is your meningioma an ''atypical'' or malignant type?
