I am not an expert by any means, just a malignant, primary brain tumor survivor still undergoing treatment. There are so many good sites on the web and one that gives very good information is the abta (American Brain Tumor Association). There are so many "it depends" in y9our question that pop in my head and yes many tumors in the brain (there are 120 types!) are in areas that doctors will not operate on due to risks! Find out the exact name of the tumor and what part of the brain it is in and contact the abta, they will also mail you free information and tell you other organizations to contact! Good luck and check back in, I am happy to help from a survivor perspective, the medical stuff is best left to the experts.
There are ways to treat these tumors, but they also come with some side effects that are hard on the body!
