What treatments are available for a metastatic brain tumor?

Metastatic brain tumors may be treated with surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy, depending on factors including the location and size of the tumor(s), the age and overall health of the patient, and the prospects for a high quality of life after treatment.

Since patients with metastatic brain tumors have complicated medical and emotional needs, it’s important that the treatment plan take a holistic approach and include a wide variety of therapies and support services.
