My father 77 had a bleed last year. Only resulting problem was some memory loss. Recently we noticed him sleeping more and having some diffculty with memory again. We called with concerns and they did a CT and found 2 tumors on his brain. One on each side. They have run many test, CT MRT and finally a PET scan to see where the origin of the cancer (we are assuming, not stated yet) is located. Still no results from the PET scan, but everything else has come back clear. They have mentioned that a biopsy will need to be done if the PET doesn't show anything. We are looking for the best Neurosurgeon to perform this and help my father. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
