The choice of treatment depends on the type of brain cancer, how advanced the cancer is and the age and general health of the individual.  Your consultant may order some diagnostic tests to help gather more information.

The three forms of treatment

  1. Surgery
  2. Radiotherapy which can include Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), conformal, Intensity Modulated or Volumetric Arc Therapy (IMRT/RapidArc) and Stereotactic Radiotherapy/Radiosurgery (CyberKnife)
  3. Drug therapy which may include Chemotherapy and/or steroid therapy

A treatment plan involving one or a combination of any of the above treatments is individually customised and your consultant will discuss your treatment plan with you.
