Is this an invite?: Sorry, i don't operate anymore. But does your granuloma represent a space-occupying lesion, compressing healthy brain? Is it a developmental "anomaly" or malformation, dysfunctional but not harmful? Is it an active infection or neoplasm? Left temporal lobe surgery risks severe speech disruption.
