Over all we got good news today! We went to the doctor and found out Kevin has a neurofibroma. Definition: a tumor that is usually benign that consists of nerve fibers and connective tissues, caused by an abnormal proliferation of schwann cells.
The doctor is sure that it is a benign tumor that will not need to be removed at least for the time being. It is located towards the bottom part of the spine by the colon and bladder. The only reason they would need to remove it is if it is still growing and starts affecting other organs or leg movements. The doctor thinks he has had it since he was little and he believes it has stopped growing. It measures more than 4 inches! It's big! He says it does not have the characteristics of becoming malignant down the road but will keep a watch on it. He will go back in 6 months to have another MRI to check the growth. As long as it stays the same he is in good shape. All in all great news...I know it could have been much worse. We are praising God! Thank you again for all of your prayers!
