How Is A Brain Tumor Prevented?
Because there are so many different types of brain tumors and their causes are so poorly understood, there is no clear way to prevent them from occurring. Even the lifestyle changes that can decrease the risk of many other types of cancer, such as quitting smoking or maintaining a healthy weight, may not decrease the chance of developing a brain tumor.
The only widely accepted preventative measure for brain tumors is the avoidance of high doses of radiation to the head.
