I'm not sure how that works. They found mine in 2007, was stable at 10 mm. Now it's grown to 1.3 cm and pushing on optic chasim. Did they do blood work on you? Need to find out what's going on w/ all your hormone stuff (ACTH, GH, Thyroid, Renin, etc). I was pretty much ignoring the tumor (based on blood work up) until it started messing w/ my horomones on optic nerve. Now it's time to consult w/ a surgeon.

I've got something similar. Mine was first diagnosed at 3mm and now it's barely visible. My understanding is when an MRI is done it takes a cross section of the brain, moves over a few mm, takes another cross section, moves over, and so on until it's done. Since it's only getting snapshots it's possible the sections the MRI is skipping are what contain the tumor. That's my understanding. If I'm wrong and someone else has better information please educate me since that's why we're here.
