Pineal gland calcification

My husband is 42.  Started going to the dr for nausea and weightloss in March.  Normal weight 180 now 130.  Has had every test you can think of even pet scan.  Only thing it hit on was pineal gland stating a pineal gland tumor could give this appearance.  Had the mri and ct scans following and confirmed "large calcification is present within the pineal gland".  Also showed alot of sinus issues and thought sinus cancer.  Saw Otolaryngologist ruled it out with further testing.  Refused to treat him for his sinus issues till he went thru onc dept.  Onc said sent to internal med.  He goes to best dr's at KU Med Center.  Never got call.  

He did see Neurosurgeon, Dr A.P.  She made follow up appt/mri/ct in 6mths.  Said Dr H,sinus specialist, would solve his problem. Thought it was sinus cancer.  Was NOT!

Now his symptoms...all the previous ones, nausea,fatigue, continued weight loss, gets up too quick and falls over...every thing goes "white" and hits the ground.  Mood swings, slurred speach, no train of thought, timeline of events of a yr ago not remembered in correct order. headaches.  I am taller than he is and he looked up to talk to me and fell over.  JUST LOOKED UP NOT GOT UP OR WAS BENT OVER AND HIT THE FLOOR.  Was confussed and legs weren't working when first tried to get up.

No hydrocephalus was on previous test.  In 4 months could it develope?  What should I be watching for?  Can a large pineal gland calcification cause this?  Could this be a tumor, Malignant or benign?  I am calling his dr when office opens but would like your opinion and suggestions.
