Sorry to hear of this worrying news, Missy R. I can't locate your previous message ( it wasn't 1184 ) but I remember it. Only the doctors looking after him could answer your questions properly. Apparently they have found a shadow within the brain --- how they need to find out what is causing this. If its an infection or abscess, antibiotics might help. With some forms of tumour, they can be removed completely ; others are more difficult to remove. Some are tumours, but not arising in the brain, but secondaries, a spread from a tumour somewhere elase --- that might be why they are doing stomach X-rays. There are various options for treatment, including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, antibiotics, and so on. And it's good to hear he's in a professor's hands. We wish him all the best
