My dear Meningimates and our beloved significant others,

Wow I just saw this new meningioma research report by Dr Elizabeth Claus!!!
YOU remember my frequently shared anecdotal personal medical history about having multiple full mouth dental xrays by three different dentists as a child before I was 19 for regular pediatric dental care, for three years of braces and two broken front teeth needing root canals and caps in high school and for removal of all my wisdom teeth.

Twenty years later in 1986 I was diagnosed with a large lower wing of the left temporal lobe 5 cm grade 2 meningioma primary brain tumor.n Ionizing radiation exposure is a risk factor for meningioma.

I believe am still alive, adjusted to my "new normal" and doing well because I frequently decided to postpone additional highly recommended brain radiation therapy early in my brain tumor journey several times in 1992, 2000, and 2004 and participated in a 1992 NCI SWOG 9005 clinical trial of a safe effective investigational study of an old generic drug Mifepristone instead . Please take this informative report to your medical doctor and limit your future cumulative lifetime radiation exposures from Cat scans by asking your doctor to please use MRI scans or other testing methods whenever possible.

Finally forty years later in 2012 you can believe what I suspected and told anyone who would listen to a brain tumor lady since 1992. LOL

Now please believe this recent report by Dr. Elizabeth Claus and a team of well known respected meningioma researchers.

Today I believe a major risk factor for cancer is multiple Cat scans, please be careful to limit cumulative lifetime number of CAT scans, especially for your children or if someone has epilepsy or serious head injury or any condition that is monitored by cat scans. Please see if you can switch to MRIs or other test methods like blood tests etc.

      Anne: I cannot find the Gazette article about dental x-rays and the brain tumor link. The link you posted is dead. Even when searching in the Gazette, it doesn't come up. Can you please re-post?

        My dear Meningimate, Ophs sorry I figured out why they closed it. If you wait until Tuesday, you'll see the press release again and this time published in multiple locations. Scientific journals make ... more
