In brief: Tb chances are good
It is quite unlikely to have both conditions at the same time.
This makes therapy more challenging but doable. Cure from tuberculosis should be expected. The main concern here is the brain cancer. For the most common adult brain cancer, survival is about a year, give or take a few months.
