Customer Question
Two years ago I was...
Two years ago I was treated with Gamma Knife for Melanoma in the brain. I have been cancer free since then. However my last MRI showed T2 Flair Hyperentensity and the possibility of microcalcification or hemorrhage. The report also stated that there is T2 susceptibility. My Dr didn't mention anything about this. Am I to take that as it is nothing to be concerned about at this time?
