Neuro Married man with personality changes

A 50 year old man was noted by his wife to have personality changes over the last year. He was slovenly and didn't appear to take an interest in his work. He became more forgetful. On examination he had frontal release signs and memory loss. He appeared unconcerned about his illness. A 3 cm left frontal lobe mass was found by MR imaging. The mass had areas of calcification. Which of the following diagnoses is most likely to be made on microscopic examination of the mass:

A Thrombosed berry aneurysm
B Oligodendroglioma
C Meningioma
D Schwannoma
E Organizing abscess
