In brief: Depends

The most common type of brain cancer will depend on the age of the patient.
Pediatrics have a different spectrum than adults. For adults, there are primary and secondary (metastatic), the latter being the more common. In an adult who has no history of cancer anywhere else in the body, the most common type of brain cancer is of the astrocytoma lineage-a glioblastoma multiforme.
