Brain tumours

Men and women discussing brain tumours

All about brain tumours, including symptoms and causes, tests to diagnose brain tumours, treatment (including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy) and current research. The living with brain tumours section covers coping with your diagnosis, going back to work, driving, and recovery for children. If you have cancer that has spread to your brain from somewhere else, some of this information may not be right for you. We have information on secondary brain tumours that will be more suitable.

More information

You can also find brain tumour organisations providing help and support, a reading list and see where this information comes from.
