BRAIN TUMORS



 

BRAIN METASTASES

Cancers in other parts of the body may spread to the brain, and when they do, these brain tumors are called brain metastases. Surgery is an option if they are few in number (less than 3), if they are easily accessible, and if the patient's primary cancer is controlled. If there are multiple metastases or if the patient is too weak and unstable to undergo surgery, radiation therapy would be a better choice.
