What are the signs and symptoms of brain metastasis. Brain metastases are a long-known devastating complication of advanced malignancies that lead to substantial morbidity. As patients with metastatic cancer are expected to live longer with newer systemic therapeutic agents and with better and more sensitive imaging studies, it is expected that more patients will be diagnosed with brain by:   Brain metastases are the most common malignant tumors of the central nervous system, yet their incidence appears to be increasing in spite of the advancement of cancer therapies.

While much is known about primary cancers (including primary brain tumors), less work has been done to uncover the roots of metastatic.

A brain metastasis is a cancer that has metastasized (spread) to the brain from another location in the body and is therefore considered a secondary brain tumor. The metastasis typically shares a cancer cell type with the original site of the cancer.
