My husband has been seeing several dr's trying to find the cause of all his symptoms. The main ones being nausea, unintentional weight loss of 50lbs and fatique. They all suspected a cancer of some form but were unable to find it. We finally asked that a pet scan be done and it showed calcifications in his brain. Does this mean he has brain cancer? He has daily headaches but nothing like a migraine. His symptoms seemed to be more gastro but I looked up symptoms for brain cancer and they are there. His dr is in the process of scheduling him for a mri of his brain. He is 42. Anyone know what calcification in the brain means?
