A 36-year-old male asked:

Significant event: Depending on the type of brain tumor, the need for chemotherapy and/or other treatments (e.g. radiotherapy) is a significant therapeutic intervention. Most likely there will be the requirement to be cared for by a team of doctors, from neuro-oncology, to neurosurgery, and radiation oncology. Regular evaluations including clinic visits and imaging will be needed.
