My Grandad has recently been admitted to hospital with a stroke but had come out after 5 days only to go back again 1 week later.

When he went in the first time he had difficulty getting his words out and was very unsteady on his feet.

This time he cannot say hardly any words right at all other than when he gets frustrated he can say 'F@@@ It' very well. When he speaks 99% of his words don't make sense at all and are as if he is speaking an alien language. He can barly stand up and is very emotional at the site of people visiting him.

He had a cat scan on saturday which they had found a spot on his brain. But because the main specialist isn't in until Monday they are very reluctant to say anything other than he most probably will need surgery.
They have now transfered him to a hospital in Romford, UK called Queens Hospital which is supposed to specialise in this sort of thing.

Does anyone have an idea of what it may be as I have no clue what so ever other than a tumor.

It doesn't sound good ... what you should do is buy 'Shark cartlidge powder'. Sounds weird and smells gross but a chinese doctor recommended it to my uncle who was diagnosed with brain cancer and was given 6 months to live. That was 4 years ago, he now has no trace of cancer anywhere, which just proves how much we still do not know about the human body and just what it is capable of. There is something in the shark cartlidge powder which helps fight against the cancer cell, yet it isn't "proven". However I believe that if scientists did find a cure for cancer so many people would go out of business who make a career out of assisting cancer patients, so if I were you I would take him to a holistic doctor as well as getting chemo if i turns out to be cancer. I know it sounds stupid and like 'which craft' but I have witnessed a man who went from being unable to string a sentence together to cancer free and now able to comfortably grow old cancer free.

My personal opinion is he doesn't have canser but that may just be optimism, I don't know but I only wish the best for him.

Well its prob not there are lots of other things it could be, I was just saying if proven to be so i'd go down that path.

Well the latest scan has proved that it is a tumor but now we have to wait 5 to 7 working days for results

If they are talking about surgery it is always a good sign whether the tumour is benign or malignant. It means they feel it is treatable.
I do wish your Grandad well.
