I had an mri in Dec found a 2cm meningioma invading the saggital sinus....a NS presented my case to a board of experts and they reviewed it. I had another mri this week to track growth, etc. The meningioma is no longer on the mri. Is this possible? Both scans are actually mine, other problems are present in both. It makes no sense to me.....is this possible? Could it be the mri? I'm going to another Dr ......but in the mean time I'm just confused!
We have someone here that had one and I hope she will post as she has done more research. 2cm as a layman is something that should not just disappear but I know with my other type of tumor, I know mine changed sizes. Are you having symptoms still?
I don't know enough - but it could be other factors at play and I would still pursue with the doctor. Do let us know what he says!
I've seen one other posting like yours, but I think that post is yours on another forum :)
Misdiagnosis is not unheard of. People have reported being told they have meningiomas and then discovering after surgery that it is something else. Most MRI reports say there is a mass with characteristics of a meningioma or most likely a meningioma, but they do not actually say with certainty it is a meningioma. Perhaps yours was something else that resolved? Or the initial scan was wrong? I have also read cases where something is found on one scan and then not there on the next. But a 2 cm mass???
I am sure you're on top of this, but perhaps you should send a copy of your original scans to another NS for a second opinion.
It makes no sense. I went to a neurologist yesterday. He assumed since it was gone it was not a meningioma, but could not tell me what it was or why I still had symptoms. I'm off to a different NS next week so hopefully someone will help us figure out what it is/was, symptoms are all still present so it is definitely something! Thank you for your help!
