Pathology Results:

Mom had an Atypical (Grade 2) Meningioma Tumor.

The tumor started in the lining of the brain. 

The tumor is not from the Breast Cancer. 

The Dr. called and said she needs to see a cancer radiation doctor/specialist. 
They scheduled an appointment for her on Aug 2 after we see Dr Baskaya.

Here is what is says on the UW Health site.
They are categorized in three grades, with grade 1 the least aggressive and grade 3 the most aggressive.
  • Benign (Grade 1)
  • Atypical (Grade 2)
  • Malignant  (Grade 3)
