I was 37 years old with no issues when I suffered a seizure at home. I had a CT scan at the local emergency room where they found a cancerous brain tumor. After getting transferred to OSU Hospital in Columbus, it was discovered that I also had cancerous lesions on my abdomen and in my lungs. It was all stage 4 melanoma (which they have never found when/where it actually started).  I had the brain tumor removed two weeks later after 3 rounds of radiation and then started an aggressive treatment plan for the melanoma one month after my seizure. I’m currently on a targeted therapy plan and have MRI scans and CT scans every couple of months.
