30 yr old with multiple Meningiomas
I am thirty years old with 4 young children. After my latest ct-scan the radiologist noted calcified meningiomas. One is in my high interhemispheric falx 17mm in AP by 7mm transverse dimension. Another one in the high right frontal region measuring 15 x 27mm.  I had a ct-scan back in 2000 due to a car accident at that time they mentioned I had calcium deposits. I have received a copy of that report and they had one measurement of 5 x 9 mm. Obviously they have grown since 2000. I went in this latest time for a ct-scan because of a lump on the back of my head. My question is; are these large enough that I should be concerned about possible seizures? I am afraid to drive on the freeway with my kids in the car. I meet with the neurosurgeon in three weeks. I wonder if he will want to do surgery right away? Are there any specific questions I should ask? Since there are two in my head should I ask for a scan of my spine as well? I have always suffered from lower back pain but attributed it to my pregnancies and flat footedness.

From what I found, many are found due to seizures, so they are possible.

It would be up to the surgeon about the surgery and ordering more scan, but I also found that yes, they are sometimes found in the spine as well.

Questions I asked my surgeon were about the type of lesion, how common, heredity, recurrence, how they are removed, scarring, risks, hospital stay, monitoring after surgery, ...

You can ask about the lower back pain - hard to tell.

Let us know what happens.

Suggestion: Check into gamma knife and ask if it is possible for you (please see other of my posts to people with meningioma questions).
