Is it possible for a meningioma brain tumor to cause bowel problems?

yes, rarely

Head
Meningiomas most commonly occur in the head but they can also affect the spinal canal. If they press on the lowest part of the spinal cord they can produce bowel problems. This is not highly likely but can happen. See your physician for full evaluation.

What is the probablity of a successful surgery on a meningioma brain tumor?

Very good

Cerebrum
The success of surgery depends largely on the location of the meningioma. Ones that are alont the convexities of the brain that are readily accessible can be removed in their entirety with minimal morbidity. Tumors at the skull base are more difficult and often require more extensive approaches. These may be associated with higher morbidity.

Hi i have got brain tumor (meningioma)frontal lob size 18.7mm ,,how much %the operation will be sucessful ?

Depends

Meningioma
This depends on your definition of success. It is probably a near 100% chance that the surgery can be done safely and that you will have no neurologic sequelae with a small convexity frontal lobe tumor. The risks of infection are about 3-5%. The risk of recurrence depends on the extent of resection and the pathology of the tumor. Not all meningiomas are the same-some are atypical, some aggressive

How many years does a doctor follow up after removal of a non cancerous meningiona brain tumor? I'm 64 . Thanks! meningioma brain tumor

Depending on grade

Meningioma
It depends on the pathology report and how well the tumor came out. If yours was WHO grade 1 (very benign) and the surgeon removed all with attached brain membrane, follow up scan up to a few years will be plenty. Please discuss with your surgeon and follow his instruction.

I have a brain tumor on my left side( meningioma)3 cm big,47 years old female overweight.In 2 days going to have a surgery.Complications scarying me?

Talk to surgeon

Meningioma
These are benign lesions but can recur. Complications depend on where they are and the competency and experience of the surgeons removing them. A 3cm lesion is usually small enough to be relatively easy to remove but if it is in the medial sphenoid wing it can be attached to the internal carotid artery or optic nerve. An olfactory groove meningioma can leave you without the sense of smelll.

Can a meningioma tumor in the brain be cancerous?

Yes but rare

Cancer
Most meningiomas are benign but occasionally they can be malignant. An MRI can help predict this but only a tissue diagnosis can confirm this.

Brain epidermoid, is it the same as a meningioma tumor the difference between the two 3cm brain stem / 8cm front lobe?

Different tumors

Cancer
A Brain epidermoid is a different tumor than a meningioma. That is, the pathology or cell type is distinctly different. These usually are different on imaging studies also. From your question, it seems that you are describing an epidermoid adjacent to the brain stem and a meningioma in the frontal lobe. This is consistent with the different tendencies these two tumors have to localize.

What's the chance of recovery from a brain tumor?

Benign or not?

Meninges
Benign tumors are often cured, hence deficits have a chance of resolving. Malignant tumors rarely if ever have a chance of recovery.
