Make the right choices for you
Our Step by Step interactive guide outlines what happens following a diagnosis, to answer your questions and help you to understand what to expect.
Talking to your medical team is important - asking questions can help you to understand your condition and allow you to make informed decisions about your treatment and care. You may want to write down a list of questions, or print this list to take with you when you see your medical team.
These questions have been written from the perspective of a patient and are not an exhaustive list. There may be additional questions that you may also want to ask that are important to you. Some questions may be personal and difficult to ask, your medical team will be used to answering these and will be happy to help.
Don't worry if you don't get to ask all of your questions at once, or if you think of further questions, you may be appointed a key worker within your medical who will be your main point of contact. They will be able to help answer the questions you have, or refer you to someone that can help.
For more detailed and specific questions, please download the following fact sheet. These questions are divided into sections based on the treatment you’re having and where you are in your experience of living with a brain tumour.
If you need someone to talk to or advice on where to get help, our Support and Information team is available by phone, email or live-chat.
By taking part in our Improving Brain Tumour Care surveys and sharing your experiences, you can help us improve treatment and care for everyone affected by a brain tumour.
