CA breast with chronic subdural hematoma.
My mother is a breast cancer patient since July 2005. She underwent MRM, chemotherapy and RT treatment, developed osseous mets in October 2007; since then in view of only bony metastasis she was on Femara and Zometa. Last week after suspicious findings in the chest x- ray she underwent PET scan. Report concluded multiple new lesions in the liver, lymphnodes and bones. At the same time a new problem was incidentally discovered Bilateral subdural collection was seen right (thickness 2.7cm)> left (thickness 1.4 cm) likely to be subdural hematoma. Mid line shift was seen (.04cm) towards left effacement of bilateral ventricles. A follow up CT brain was performed which suggested bilateral frontoparietal and temporal (right > left) chronic subdural hematoma seen. No midline shift was seen. Basal ganglia, thalamus and brainstem are normal. In view of her health our neurologist suggested a follow up CT brain scan after 2 weeks and prescribed 2Tabs Eptoin 100mg daily.  She is apparently showing no major symptoms except for occasional headaches. Is this related to cancer or side effect of any cancer drug? She might start second line chemotherapy shortly. Does she require any brain surgery for this? cancer has already invaded the cranial vault. Is this a life threatening condition? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
