Learn about brain cancer

The brain controls many body functions, including speech, hearing, movement, thoughts, memory, vision and more. Brain cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells form within the tissues of the brain. Any tumor that starts in another part of the body and spreads to the brain is considered metastatic cancer. Metastatic brain tumors are more common than primary brain tumors. Some cancers that commonly spread to the brain include lung, melanoma, colon, breast and kidney cancers.

Brain cancer diagnostic evaluations

In order to better understand your cancer and recommend a personalized treatment plan, you will likely undergo an evaluation to initiate or confirm your brain cancer diagnosis. Our brain cancer experts will review your medical history and health records, and use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including advanced imaging and laboratory tests, to evaluate the cancer. Once we have diagnosed your brain cancer type and stage, we will recommend a personalized brain cancer treatment plan tailored to you.
