Brain Tumor Treatments
Several different treatments for a brain tumor are available. These include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. What your healthcare provider recommends will depend upon the type of brain cancer, the size and location of the tumor, the tumor grade, and your general health.
Specialists who treat brain cancer include:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists.
You may find it helpful to get a second opinion when discussing your treatment options. There is nothing wrong with this; in fact, some insurance companies require it.
