A Diagnosis of Brain Cancer
The diagnosis of a primary malignant brain tumor (that is cancerous), a metastatic brain tumor (brain tumor that starts elsewhere in the body and spreads to the brain) or a neurological complication of cancer is devastating to patients and their families. However, depending on the condition, there are often many treatment options.
