Brain Cancer Treatment
Treatment for brain cancer should be individualized for each patient. Treatment regimens are based on the patient's age and general health status as well as the size, location, type, and grade of the tumor. In most cases of brain cancer, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are the main types of treatment. Often, more than one treatment type is used. The treatment types are further described below.
The patient, family, and friends will have many questions about the tumor, the treatment, how treatment will affect the person, and the person's long-term outlook (prognosis). Members of the person's health-care team are the best source of this information. Don't hesitate to ask them any questions.
