Clarification needed

Since reducing Matt's steroids down to 4 mg a day, he's started to feel deficits on his right side - a weaker right arm and leg, his balance isn't as good as it was and struggling to find words or express what he waants again. 

We finally bit the bullet today and called Matt's Macmillan nurse to get the low down and as suspected, it seems like the reduction in steroids has meant the swelling in the brain has reinstate ditself and started to make a nuisance of itself.  So not what we wanted to hear. 

My understanding is that the swelling is liquid or matter that's pressing on the motor function part of the brain and the tumour is a separate mass but Matt's understanding is that the swelling is the tumour...  #clarification needed
