Metastatic Brain Tumors Overview:

 

  • Overall, the most common brain tumors are metastatic brain tumors which arise from a primary tumor elsewhere in the body.

  • The distribution of metastatic tumor types in the brain reflects the distribution of systemic tumors in the general population. Therefore, most brain metastases arise from lung cancer, breast cancer, or melanoma, which represent the three most common sites of primary tumors.

  • The number and location of metastases guides the determination of the proper treatment approach, especially the decision for surgical resection.

  • A major predictor of survival is the number of cranial lesions that occur in patients who present with metastatic brain disease.
