Worried, a lesion means there in an abnormality on the scan. It just says that there is something, but not what this something is.
It’s possible that the seizure was due to a clot like you said, but it’s also possible that it’s due to the lesion or that the lesion is the bleeding associated with the seizure/stroke.
I’m not sure what medication she’s on, but thinning her blood might be dangerous if they don’t know what the lesion is.
A blood clot should go straight through her heart and not cause problems there. Where it goes from there will determine how bad the damage is.
I suppose the best person to see would be her oncologist as he will be able to give you the most information on her condition.
It might be that the doctors don’t want to give you bad news when they’re not 100% sure of what’s going on. It might be that the cancer has returned and that the lesion is a metastasis, but at this stage they’re not sure yet. I hope that I’m wrong, so please let me know when you have time. Good luck.
