My son was diagnosed with an astrocytoma brain tumor in 2009, stage 3. He had surgery, radiation, and Avastin treatments. It has reoccurred twice. In September he got septic, wasn't expected to live, but he did. He is home with hospice care. He occasionally has low grade fevers for about 8 hours and then the fever goes away. He has no other symptoms whatsoever. I wonder if these low grade fevers can be related to cancer cells growing in his brain.
