In brief: Other mets
Once a tumor has metastasized to the brain, the same tumor usually has spread to other organs as well.
A few tumors, e.g., choriocarcinoma may still be treatable, but in general brain mets signal an incurable tumor.

In brief: Low
There are a few tumor types that spread to the brain and respond well to aggessive therapy.
Most tumors that spread to the brain will respond to treatment, but even with good therapy, brain metastasis is usually a sign that disease is in the late stages and long term prognosis is quite poor. That said, without treatment, prognosis is much worse.
