Kelley has experienced head pain, swelling and numbness on the right side of her face and mouth for the last 3 years. Kelley went to the dentist for the pain in her mouth who told her the pain is not your teeth go to the doctor. The doctor told her it's your teeth go to the dentist. 3 years later and 2 root canals and 5 teeth refilled later the dentist said definitely not your teeth causing the pain go get a MRI of your head. Kelley's doctor agreed and scheduled a MRI. The MRI showed a 1 inch tumor behind the right eye, Kelley was then scheduled the next day to see a neurosurgeon Dr. Jerry Davis who happened to have a opening. After consulting with Dr. Davis and he looked at the MRI he ordered a 2nd MRI that was localized for the optical area of the head. The 2nd MRI showed the 1st tumor over the right eye much clearer and they determined the tumor was pressing out on Kelley's eye and would have to be removed. The 2nd MRI also showed a 2nd tumor over her left eye, a much smaller one, that the doctor determined they will just monitor it for awhile and not remove it yet.
