Brain Tumor

Diagnosis and Treatment

Brain Tumor Fast Diagnosis

If your doctor suspects you may have a brain tumor, it is normal to feel worried or overwhelmed. You might wonder why this is happening to you. Here at the Comprehensive Cancer Center, we understand – and we put your needs and concerns first every step of the way – from diagnosis through survivorship.

If you need a diagnosis, we schedule your appointment within 2 working days. Our team of nationally recognized experts, which includes medical oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and neurologists will evaluate your case. You will see all appropriate specialists on the same day, and they may recommend a brain biopsy. We recommend that you bring along a friend or family member to help support you through your diagnosis day.

Your Brain Tumor Treatment Team

Our specialists are your team. And like any team owner, your input is essential to every decision we make. Once we have a diagnosis, our team works together with each other, and with you and your family, to develop the most advanced and effective treatment plan—treatment that may include brain surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and/or novel therapeutics.

As you and your family navigate through the treatment process, we continue to offer a broad range of support through patient and family support services including:

  • Neurorehabilitation 
  • Neuropsychology 
  • Physical therapy 
  • Occupational therapy 
  • Speech therapy 
  • Recreation therapy 
  • Social work
  • Survivorship

There is no question that dealing with a brain tumor will be a challenge. However, at the Comprehensive Cancer Center, our combination of compassionate, innovative care and patient-centered approach is helping us all win the battle against brain tumors.
