Metastatic Brain Tumors

A metastatic brain tumor is a type of cancer that has spread to the brain from another part of the body. Cancer cells can travel from the primary tumor to the brain through the bloodstream, where they may form a mass called brain metastases. Metastatic brain tumors can develop quickly or may appear many years after the primary cancer.

Any type of tumor can spread to the brain, but the most common ones include cancers of the lung, breast, gastrointestinal tract, and kidney, as well as melanoma.
