This Brain Tumour Australia Information website was compiled to meet what its authors saw as an unmet need. During the past 14 years it has been our pleasure to meet either directly or indirectly so many wonderful people all involved in the terrifying and confronting world of brain tumours.
Those diagnosed with both benign and malignant tumours; their families and care givers, their friends and colleagues; and the various health professionals including, neuro surgeons, radiation and medical oncologists, pathologists, researchers, nurses, allied health and service providers who are devoting their energies to treating the disease, caring for the patient and family and looking for answers.
The Brain Tumour Australia Information provided on this website will not, of course, answer all of your questions, nor is it intended as a substitute for information obtained directly from doctors, nurses, or allied health professionals.
Rather, by increasing your knowledge of brain tumours, you will be better able to talk with the various health professionals who comprise your treatment or care team and discuss your diagnosis, your treatment options and your prognosis [the outlook for you and your family] and develop strategies to assist you all cope.
