The doctors found a small mass on my left frontal lobe in 2004 when I had a seizure. They ran so many EEGs, MRIs, and other test and they have just decided in that it hasn't grown, changed, or shifted so it must be benign or low-grade. I was getting severe headaches and would black out from time to time. I quit taking all medicines over the past year, and have reduced my caffiene intake to only one cup a day, sleep at least nine hours a day and haven't had a seizure for 3 years now. I still get an MRI done twice a year and a EEG done once a year. I don't want to have the tumor removed for a couple of reasons. First, I am petrified of not waking up or not being able to speak or move. Second, because it is in the part of my brain where my speech is located and the doctors feel I would lose my speech once removed. I know I have a tumor, but it doesn't effect my daily life and I refuse to dwell on it! I only get to live once and I choose to focus on the positive things in my life; like my kids, my boyfriend, and my grandson!
