Brain Cancer

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

Each year in the United States, more than 20,000 people are diagnosed with cancer of the brain or another part of the nervous system. Thanks to advances in brain cancer treatment, individuals with brain cancer are living longer. It is estimated that there are more than 120,000 survivors of brain cancer or other nervous system cancer living in the U.S. today. Advances in surgery and radiation therapy have contributed to improved brain cancer survival. In addition, advances in supportive care have made brain cancer treatment more tolerable, leading to improved quality of life. Understanding brain cancer treatment options, the role of different doctors specializing in the treatment of brain cancer, and how and when to access new and innovative brain cancer treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from brain cancer treatment. The Cancer Consultants Brain Cancer Information Center has been designed to help patients understand brain cancer and brain cancer treatment options while providing ongoing information, inspiration, support, and community to individuals affected by a diagnosis of brain cancer.
