General information about the brain
The brain is a complex organ located inside the skull. The purpose of the brain is to receive, organize, and distribute information produced by the body, while controlling physical actions.
What is brain cancer?
Brain cancer can be an aggressive and invasive disease. This type of cancer is the result of abnormal cell growth in the brain tissue. This growth can result in interference of brain function such as memory, senses and sensation, and motor control.
Signs and symptoms of brain cancer
Brain cancer can be slow growing and therefore can affect signs and symptoms of this disease. Metastatic brain cancer has a poor prognosis and can be difficult to treat. Symptoms could include:
Traditional treatment options for brain cancer
There are various treatment options for brain cancer. Traditional treatments can begin with the removal of the cancer and surround tissue.

Radiation therapy may also be considered an option for some brain cancer patients. Radiation therapy is used in an attempt to destroy cancerous cells and cause a reduction in tumor size. It is most often used for brain cancer that has metastasized. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are often performed simultaneously.
