what do you suggest if my mom has breast cancer in brain?

Dr. Anderson Bauer
18 years experience Radiation Oncology
Options: There are many factors to consider. 1) If there are 4 or less brain metastases, stereotactic radiation treatment can be considered; this is especially true if there are no other areas of active disease. 2) If there are more than 4 areas of brain metastasis, then typically whole brain radiation treatment is given. 3) In some cases hospice can be the appropriate option.

Unfortunately: Once cancer metastasizes to brain, life span is limited. It is impossible to say how much longer she can survive, but prognosis is bleak. Sorry.
