It isn't high grade! It isn't low grade either, actually, its intermediate. but still...
The scale is 1-5 = low grade. 6-25 is high grade. My tumor is a 5.4. So it's borderline, but it could be worse. So much worse.
Now we are debating whether to do radiation therapy before surgery or after. I think I will go with after, as there is a chance it won't be needed at all, and I want this tumor out sooner rather than later. I'm waiting for my doctor's final opinion on the matter, but I would rather do surgery first so there is no chance of the cancer progressing while we do radiation therapy.
More later, we're headed home now.
