Recurrent Brain Tumor

Treatments for Recurrent Brain Tumor

Treatment options for a recurrent brain tumor will likely resemble the patient’s original treatment regimen—e.g., surgery to remove the tumor (or as much of it as possible), chemotherapy, radiation therapy and targeted therapy. However, these may be given in a different combination or at a different pace. In addition, patients who have already had a standard course of radiation therapy may not be able to receive another with incurring complications, though radiosurgery, a more precise form of radiation therapy, may work in these cases. Also, medications such as temozolomide and bevacizumab have been approved for use in treating recurrent tumors, and some patients with recurrent tumors may be recommended for clinical trials into new treatments.
