Needs fu: Hi Kimmer,
You will need monitoring with repeat scans (ideally MRI with contrast) to "keep an eye" on any potential change in the size of the mass. Most meningiomas grow very slowly or sometimes remain stationary. If it is causing symptoms then may need to be treated sooner rather than later.
Would be happy to see you as a virtual consult as well.
Best of luck,
Dr. Ayman Omar
