According to your previous posts you had Gamma Knife in July 2007 and a year later it had shrunk some.

Now it's growing again.

The choices are likely to be either surgery or repeat the Gamma Knife.

What discussions have you had with your doctors?
3/15/18 12mm x 6mm x5mm
9/21/16 12mm x 7mm x 5mm
3/23/15 12mm x 5.5mm x 4mm
3/13/14 12mm x 6mm x 4mm
8/1/13 14mm x 5mm x 4mm (Expected)
1/22/13 12mm x 3mm (Gamma Knife)
10/10/12 11mm x 4mm x 5mm
4/4/12 9mm x 4mm x 3mm (Diagnosis)

I haven't, and am so sorry you are going through this on top of everything else. Feel free to pm (we have the same neurosurgeon - I had FSRS in 2010).

2.9 cm AN on left side diagnosed 9/9/2010
Finished 26 sessions of fractionated stereotactic radiation on 11/22/2010
Symptoms of increased intracranial pressure since summer of 2010. Trying to determine if related to AN.  Some good doctors say yes, some good doctors say no.
