Sadly many brain tumors in adults are aggressive but surgery can be helpful in extending life when tumors can be completely removed.

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
The average primary care physician probably will see only 1 patient with a brain tumor in their entire career. Oncologists see far more and neuro-oncologists such as me see very many.
Our program sees over 1000 patients new to duke each year with a brain tumor.
