Brain Cancer: Treatment and Prevention
For years, brain cancer has been considered one of the most devastating diagnoses. Understandably, since tumors can develop rapidly and impact many mental and physical functions. Unlike some cancers, brain cancer is difficult to prevent so early detection and treatment are critical for the best possible chance of survival. Recently, several advances in brain cancer treatment have been made, including surgery, radiation and targeted cancer medicines.
