1 doctor agrees

In brief: It depends

There are several types of brain tumors.
They can be primary brain tumors or often the tumor may come from another cancer outside of the brain. Primary brain cancer can have a good prognosis if they are low grade(glioma) or poor results if the brain tumor is of the high grade(also called glioblastoma). Nearly 50-60% of the brain tumors are not curable, yet the treatment can extend life.
