Around 20% to 30% of meningiomas are aggressive and potentially deadly.
Researchers identified genetic alterations in gliomas, a common brain tumor, that may lead to better treatments.
My identity is fragmented. I am not sure whether I am part of the brain tumor now or whether the brain tumor is a part of me.
New studies shed light on rates of depression, anxiety and the risks of self-harm and suicide in people diagnosed with cancer.
Research led by Adam Green, MD, shows the five-year survival rates for children ages 0 to 3 months is half that of children ages 1 to 19.
This post is dedicated to my dear friend Jessica Morris. Rest in power, Jess. XX
Study is first to show benefit of any targeted drugs in glioblastomas—the most aggressive brain tumors.
Five years ago, two surgeons partnered to remove the majority of a 71mm primary brain tumor from my medial right parietal lobe.
It is difficult, if not impossible, to imprint on others the what-it’s-likeness of cancer, in my case, brain cancer.
However, the incidence rate of brain tumors among children and adolescents slightly increased during the same period, 2008 to 2017.
Study finds 4% of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma developed asymptomatic brain metastases, correlating to poorer outcomes.
Patients are told not to throw in the towel. But when we frame cancer survivorship by a relentless battle, we award the wrong priorities.
A new study suggests a link between a pathogen commonly found in undercooked meat and the risk of glioma, a type of brain cancer, in adults.
Study finds that using steroids to treat brain tumor symptoms may limit the effectiveness of immunotherapy drugs against these tumors.
Recently, we met (virtually) with my neuro-oncologist to hear the results of my recent MRI scan.
Tumors known as gliomas generally don’t respond to the immunotherapy drugs even when the tumor cells are “hypermutated."
