Brain Tumor Chemotherapy to Help You in Recovery
Brain Tumor Chemotherapy to Help You in Recovery

Anti-cancer (cytotoxic) medications are used for chemical therapy to kill cells of brain tumors. Medicines circulate in the bloodstream all over your body.

Some chemotherapy drugs can be difficult to treat brain tumors because the blood brain barrier protects the brain. This is a natural filter that protects the brain against harmful substances between the blood and the brain. If you are suspected with brain tumor visit the neuro-oncologist near you as soon as possible.

When to Have Brain Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy may be possible:

  • For some brain tumor types like gliomas (after surgery)

  • With and radiotherapy some months later

  • For recurring brain tumor

How Many Treatment Sessions?

Chemotherapy is usually performed in treatment cycles. That means you have medicines every few weeks for a few days. When you recover from side effects, there is a time with no treatment.

How often you receive treatment depends on the medications or medicines you have.

  • Intrathecal chemotherapy into your spinal cord;

  • In your brain directly

  • As Tablets (Oral Chemotherapy) Or Capsules You Swallow.
