Recurrent Brain Tumor

Screening and Tests for Recurrent Brain Tumor

Screening for a recurrent brain tumor may involve some of the same tests used in originally diagnosing the cancer. These tests may include: an angiogram, or a special dye injected into the bloodstream that flows through the brain’s blood vessels and help show the location of blood vessels in and around a brain tumor; a CT scan and MRI, which can help doctors see detailed images of the brain; a neurological exam, which checks a patient’s vision, hearing, balance, reflexes and coordination; x-rays, which may show skull alterations indicating a tumor; and a biopsy, which may help doctors determine whether a tumor is malignant or benign.
