Brain tumor types: There are many types of brain tumors both inside the brain and inside the skull but outside the brain and they all have different therapies, prognoses and implications. Get your information and take it to your doctor and ask for a explanation.

Why do you have to tell your boss? This is your private medical information. If you need to tell your boss that you need some time off, ask your physician how to do that regarding work skills (won't be able to type for x weeks; this is just an example). Make a list of questions and bring it into your doctor.
