In brief: Brain Tumor

It totally depends on the tumor. Some tumors are very aggressive and you only have days to weeks to live.
Others are not aggressive and can be present for decades without causing death.

In brief: It depends.....

There are many, many types of brain tumors.
Prognosis for a patient depends on the type of tumor and location. Large tumors can sometimes be easier to treat and curable than small tumors. Treatment can include any combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation therapy. It is important to try to be treated at a center that has as much experience as possible in treating brain tumors.
