Get Informed About Brain Tumor Treatment
How to make sense of the options, and then make a plan that you can feel confident in
Research for more treatment options continue, but the standard of care for brain tumors remains as surgery, chemotheraphy, and radiation. Your loved one’s treatment will look different than others based on their unique diagnosis.
Clinical trials are crucial to finding more treatment options for brain tumor patients. If your loved one wants to consider participating in a clinical trial, it is important to discuss this early on with your medical team as the treatment plan could determine if they are eligible.
When determining a treatment plan, be sure to ask questions so that all involved feel comfortable and secure with the decisions being made.
