Understanding primary brain tumours
About this booklet
We have separate information about tumours that start somewhere else in the body and spread to the brain. These are called secondary brain tumours or brain metastases.
Brain tumours can also affect children. If you need information about brain tumours in children, you can contact the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group. Turn to page 115 for their contact details.
We hope this booklet answers your questions and helps you deal with some of the feelings you may have. We can’t advise you about the best treatment for you. This information can only come from your doctor, who knows your full medical history.
