              My "guess" would be the tumor is getting large enough to impinge on a nerve.  That could cause shooting pains as well as numbness.  My guess is that the symptoms would continue unless the tumor is removed.  However, it could be something else entirely….

                  I agree with Janner. Sounds like it is pressing on a nerve which would cause ths shooting pains and the numbness.
