Sizes of Schwannomas
« on: January 25, 2019, 10:43:03 am »
I read a lot of posts referring to *mm x *mm or a singular *cm size.  My MRI report said 1.4 cm x 0.9 cm.  How would this translate?

Agavegirl, you'd multiply by 10 so 1.4cm = 14mm.

Sometimes there's even a third dimension (usually the height). At least at 1.4 cm x 0.9 cm your tumor is small.
