Because of the tendency of many brain tumors to recur, the resistance of some brain cancers to treatment, and the possible side effects of these cancers and their therapies, long-term follow-up examinations are always advised. Following surgery, an MRI scan is performed to determine the extent of tumor removal and to help plan further treatment. Repeat MRI scans are also done on an ongoing basis after radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Frequent physical examinations are given to detect tumor recurrence or side effects of treatment. It is important to report any new symptoms, such as headache, to your doctor right away, because they may indicate cancer recurrence or side effects of treatment. Brain cancers rarely spread outside the central nervous system.
