Treatment Tools

Deciding on a treatment for yourself or for someone you love can be completely overwhelming. Most likely your decision will be guided by your doctors, yet it's very important to make a well informed decision and do your own research on types of treatments for brain tumors so you will know what questions to ask your doctor. Also, having a little knowledge on all treatments will help you feel more comfortable with your treatment plan.

Many variables are incorporated into the treatment plan such as type of tumor, recurrence of the tumor, success rate, the length of treatment and its effects on the patient, the side effects of treatment, and most importantly the patient and their families' wishes  and goals for the treatment of their tumor. The Braintmr listserve is a really good way to find out about treatments that others are considering or have tried, and it can be very supportive to discuss and receive feedback from others going through the same decision making process.
