    NervUs .. on point.

    This is where we were with our son. The surgeon said, "it was a tumor, it appears to be a low grade cancer".

    He even had referral papers for radiation.

    Final pathology... benign.

    At my previous employer, I had a co-worker whose daughter had a brain tumor which was removed via surgery when she was 4. That was about 15 years ago. She is now in college and doing well! Don't underestimate how durable kids are.

    NancyW, I been too scared to google all the terms. Are you saying that low grade is different than benign? Also thanks for all the comments and thoughts. I need to hear from people like me.

    Please don't google, I didn't either, too scared and I have sworn off of it because it always does more harm than good.

    Yes it's different, low grade cancer is still cancer but not aggressive, and treatable, curable.

    Benign is no cancer.

    Just to say my thoughts are with you, your son and family at this extremely difficult time. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like going through this, and I'm sure going from a suspected abscess to a confirmed tumour was devastating to say the least.

    Please stay off Google, as it will not give any sort of helpful information at this time. It's worth noting that brain tumours in children are often of a different variety to that seen in adults. Children's tumours are often very treatable and can have a very good outlook.

    Again, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this dreadful time. I'll keep you all in my prayers.
