What to do after a brain tumour diagnosis
Receiving the news that you or a loved one has had a brain tumour diagnosis can be a confusing and daunting time. We’ve developed a range of information resources to help answer the questions you may have when newly diagnosed.
When first diagnosed with a brain tumour, we know that people have lots of questions about what is going to happen. These are not always easy to answer and each person’s journey will be unique, but we’ve tried to address some of the common issues that many patients will share.
