I am not a doctor. I know I have a dark spot on my clivus - but it is not being considered a tumor.
There is simply not enough information to even hazard a guess but just the word lesion can cover anything up to and including tumor.
Reread report benign neoplasm. Definition of neoplasm is tumor I guess. Any else have this?
First had a CT scan. What other tests available?
Blood tests, PET scans etc.
Are they doing wait and see, or are they going to see what it is?
No other tests besides a MRI and another specialists. Head of a department at a major univ. hosp. Will redo the MRI in 6 months and see if it has grown.
I'm going to my Hematology dr. to have my rare anemias rechecked since the above also was of bone marrow.
What was the size of the lesion - any mass effect?
Good luck with your other tests maybe he/she can shed light on the lesion.
After speaking with the assistant, I was told that it was so small they didn't measure it.
If you can, get a copy of the report. I always do. It gives you a lot more information and is helpful to know information over time as sadly, docs are in a hurry and it pays for you to know your own history well. I would guess since you are already dealing with another serious illness you have this down so I am preaching to the choir though...
I do have both the Ct and MRI report.
