Emjay, a meningioma is a tumour of the meninges (membranes around the brain) and an osteoma is a tumour of bone. Leucocytes are the white blood cells – a slightly low count might mean that your immunity is suppressed but in isolation doesn’t mean much. Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
