In brief: Depend on tumor type

Treating for growing tumors depends on the type of tumor, location and what treatments have already been tried.
Combinations of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy are common.

In brief: GBM therapy

Best know exact tumor type.
By aggressive brain tumor I am presuming you mean a primary brain tumor known as glioblastoma multiforme(gbm). Treatment includes maximum safe resection+/-bcnu wafer and based on performance status- radiation + temazolamide. Stupp r et al. Radiotherapy + concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide vs radiotherapy alone, lancet oncol 2009.
