Brain Cancer: Prevention

Doctors and researchers have yet to determine the potential causes of a brain tumor. There are, however, recognized risk factors to help you prevent the development of a brain tumor.

Currently, the best way is to decrease your risk is familize yourself with your family history to know if there are any hereditary indicators, and by protecting yourself from exposure to high levels of ionizing radiation. (See Risk Factors.)
