Screening for Brain Tumors
Screening is a method of finding out if you have a brain tumor before you begin to have any symptoms. Screening involves assessing your medical history and lifestyle habits that may increase or decrease your risk of a disease and having tests to identify early signs of a disease.
There are no screening guidelines or tests for brain tumors.
