Metastatic Brain Tumor
Metastatic brain tumors result from cancer that started elsewhere in the
body and spread (metastasized) to the brain. For example, if lung cancer
has spread to the brain, the cells in the tumor would look like lung cells
rather than brain cells. Metastases to the brain are the most common intracranial
tumors in adults, 10 times more common than primary brain tumors. These
tumors can be treated with surgery, whole brain radiation therapy or focus
Gamma Knife Radiosurgery.
