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.

If you have any questions, please e-mail us at support@thebraintumourcharity.org or ring our Support and Information Team between 9.00am – 5.00pm on 0808 800 0004.
