Metastatic Brain Tumors in Adults

A metastatic brain tumor is cancer that has spread to the brain from another part of the body. Any type of tumor can spread to the brain, but the most common ones include cancers of the lung, breast, gastrointestinal tract, and kidney, as well as melanoma. Our doctors collaborate to create a personalized treatment plan for you, which may include a combination of treatments such as surgery, Gamma Knife® radiosurgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
