The diagnosis of a brain tumor may be hampered by the often non-specific nature and gradual development of early symptoms. Once diagnosed, the risk of damage to adjacent brain tissue, the presence of the blood-brain barrier, and difficulties accessing the tumor pose a considerable management challenge. In this book, two international experts succinctly describe the clinical features, imaging modalities, and treatment options for brain tumors. They then discuss the various tumor types in detail, providing clear information on preferred treatment strategies. Well presented and highly readable, this book will be an invaluable resource for primary care physicians, who play a pivotal role in tumor detection and subsequent patient care.
