Brain Cancer

 

Learning you have a brain tumor is life changing. Lutheran Medical Center's Neuro-Oncology program offers comprehensive treatment for brain and central nervous system (CNS) cancers. Our compassionate care team provides in-depth expertise, and your nurse navigator will be with you every step of the way so you can begin treatment within days.

Brain cancer detection and diagnosis

Most brain tumors are found when you report unusual symptoms to your doctor. Some of the more noticeable symptoms are headaches that get worse over time, balance problems, personality and behavioral changes and seizures. During your visit, your doctor will test physical skills like reflexes, muscle strength, sensation, eye and mouth movement, vision, coordination and alertness. If a tumor is suspected, your doctor will send you for additional exams or tests to confirm the diagnosis.
