Treatment of brain cancer or benign brain tumors is complex, often involving a team of doctors. These doctors includes neurosurgeons (specialists in the brain and nervous system), oncologists, radiation oncologists (doctors who practice radiation therapy) and, your general practitioner. Your team will also include a dietitian, a social worker, a physiotherapist and probably other specialists.
Treatment varies according to the type and location of the tumor, a patient's age and other medical issues. The most widely used treatments are surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, individually or as a series of treatments.
