Treatments can involve steroids and other medications, targeted therapy, surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. It will depend on the tumour’s grade, stage, type and placement.

Surgery is the most common treatment. It involves removing part or all of the tumour. There are two methods of doing this: craniotomy (cutting part of the skull to access the tumour) and neuro-endoscopy (creating a Burr hole to get to the tumour).

After surgery, we may perform radiation therapy (radiotherapy) to kill any remaining cancer cells. We can also use radiotherapy if surgery is not possible. Another option is chemotherapy, which uses anti-cancer drugs to attack tumour cells. You may have combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy as part of your treatment plan. We call this chemoradiotherapy.

You may need additional support with managing the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. We will discuss all options when we are assessing your treatment suitability. Your treatment plan may evolve as your condition progresses or we learn more about your condition.
