In brief: Yes

Average survival rates can can be given for the most common forms of brain tumors, but they are averages and some people survive longer and some shorter.

In brief: Too many factors

To answer that question here.
The type of tumor, tumor aggressiveness, whether its a primary brain tumor or metastasis, and other medical conditions of the patient all play into that calculus. Your neurosurgeon or oncologist may be able to give you some general guidelines.
