Abstract

  Towards a Targeted Molecular Approach for Brain Metastases

The most devastating statement a neuro-oncologist will ever make and a cancer patient will ever hear is, “Your cancer has spread to your brain” because based on the currently available treatments, that statement is likely to be followed by, “Even with surgery and radiation, you may only survive another six months.”
