Metastatic Brain Tumors

LandingMetastatic Brain Tumors

If you, a family member or friend have been diagnosed with a metastatic brain tumor, our team of experts is here to provide help and guidance. At the Pacific Brain Tumor Center, we provide comprehensive care for patients with metastatic brain tumors, as well as patient education and psychosocial support.

Metastatic brain tumors arise from a cancer elsewhere in the body, most often from cancers of the breast, colon, lung, ovary, kidney, thyroid and skin (melanoma). The optimal initial treatment for patients with metastatic brain tumors are typically focused radiation (radiosurgery) and/or surgical removal depending upon the size, location and number of metastases. Depending upon the primary cancer site, many patients also need chemo- or immunotherapy. Our highly skilled neurosurgeons have extensive experience in minimally invasive keyhole metastatic brain tumor removal. Our neuro-oncologists are on the leading edge of targeted metastatic cancer therapies, clinical trials and tumor genomic profiling. Our radiation oncologists have extensive experience in the radiosurgical treatment of brain metastases. Together our team can design the optimal treatment plan for each patient.
