Very, very low : I'm linking to statistics, but there is every reason to think it's not brain cancer. Stress is my guess and other illnesses and conditions may be involved. Consider supportive therapy to relieve the burden, or yoga, meditation, support groups - have a full general exam to discover anemia, thyroid or other deficiencies, etc. http://www.abta.org/about-us/news/brain-tumor-statistics/ Best wishes.
