Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have seen your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The answers to your questions are as follows:
1. Central neurocytoma is not a cancerous tumor. However, depending on the grade of the tumor, it can have a recurrence.
2. The goal of surgery currently is to achieve safe maximal resection of the tumor. If some portion of the tumor is left behind, it can be addressed with adjuvant therapy, such as radiotherapy. Again, the histopathology will guide us on whether adjuvant therapy is required or not.
3. The medications provided are not to cure the lesion. There is no medicine to cure this tumor.
4. And there are possibilities for recurrence of the tumor.
5. There are side effects of the prescribed medicines. But, generally, the medicines are safe except for the women intending to get pregnant, and the medicines need to be changed in case of marriage.
6. There are no implications of chronic SDH (chronic subdural hematoma), which is mentioned as the new finding in the latest MRI report.
