Brain cancer

Providing you with comprehensive – but personalized – cancer care

Receiving a brain cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event. Thoughts are racing through your mind like, “How could this happen to me?” or “What do I do now?” and “How will this affect my life?”

You can trust Novant Health Cancer Institute's multidisciplinary team of specialists to provide highly individualized treatment in a compassionate environment where education and emotional support are our top priorities.

Your team of specialists focuses on you and your treatment

We have a team of experts who will customize your brain cancer care based on your individual case. The dedicated professionals that will be closely working with you include experts from surgical, medical oncology and radiation oncology; radiology; pathology; nutrition, patient navigation, clinical research, psychosocial support services and symptom management.

Cancer patient navigators help you through your treatment

If you are facing a brain cancer diagnosis, you will have many questions and concerns that need to be addressed. That’s why we provide our cancer patient navigators to support you and your family through your fight against this disease. These specially trained registered nurses are always available to you – beginning at diagnosis and continuing through treatment and recovery.

Specialized care for inpatient treatment

Sometimes treatment requires you to stay overnight. If so, our inpatient oncology unit will provide you with specialized care, support and amenities to make you feel comfortable during your visit.

Clinical trials offer treatments not widely available

We participate in national and international clinical research trials that offer you the opportunity to receive cancer treatments not widely available elsewhere.

Cancer support for you and your family

A brain cancer diagnosis can be challenging both for the patient and the family. At Novant Health Cancer Institute, we offer support services like counseling, support groups, financial resource guidance / case management and educational seminars to help deal with the mental, emotional and financial aspects of a diagnosis.

Symptom management to improve your quality of life

Our comprehensive cancer care includes helping you manage the physical side effects of your disease and its treatment. Novant Health Cancer Institute facilities offer expert-led programs such as nutrition counseling, exercise, physical therapy, yoga and massage to help make the road to recovery a little smoother.

Leading-edge treatment of brain tumors

Your physician may prescribe stereotactic radiosurgery to treat your brain cancer.
