In brief: Type and location

There are many kinds of brain tumors, depends on what type you refer to (histological diagnosis determines what to expect).
Location is crucial also, some locations in the brain are unforgiving and people may not live long if tumor is pushing on the brain stem for example. Age and social support networks plays a role too.
