Treatment options for a brain tumor depend on the type, location, and size of the tumor and may include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or most likely a combination of these options. Treatment can be postponed in some cases if a tumor appears to be slow-growing and is not causing symptoms. Although there are initial standard-of-care treatment plans for most tumors, in some cases, experimental therapies may be recommended if standard therapies are unsuccessful.
