I was hoping that someone on here may have the same thing that I do...I was diganosed with a brain tumor several years ago and recently they have been able to determine that it is a tumor called a Hemangioblastoma-which in Dr.Seuss terms means a mass of twisted blood vessels. It is in the back of my brain near the stem and so far have been told I can not have surgery and now there is a cyst inside the tumor that if it bursts so will the tumor...To put it the way the doctor did to me,she said it is like an egg with a yoke in it. Does anyone else have this type of tumor or know anyone who does? If so,can you give me any information on it.I have tried to search the web and have not found a whole lot and you know how doctors are when it comes to you asking questions about your own body..I would really appreciate anyones help...Thank you
