What is the best or newest treatment for brain metastases?


Question from JBick: What is the latest/best treatment for brain metastasis that involves multiple lesions?
Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. Patients with multiple brain lesions are best treated with radiation to the entire brain. If one or two of the areas are particularly large, they may add focused or stereotactic radiation to that area.
