By now chemotherapy has achieved a great improvement in treating brain cancer, but due to special construction of blood-brain barrier, chemotherapy has been confined by many factors. Any drugs of chemotherapy can penetrate endangium cells due to liposolubility, and then enter and work on cancer cells. Such mode has influenced the speed and efficiency of drugs action.

Radiotherapy mainly adopts the characteristics that cancer cells are extreme sensitive to radioactive rays and can be easily damaged by these rays to perform treatments. The scale of radiation scope and dosage shall be defined as per tumor cancer pathologic diagnosis, differentiation degree and results of imageology examinations. For the in-depth brain tumor that cannot be safely cut, radiotherapy can be applied; however, the process of radiotherapy may cause relatively big toxic reaction or side effect.
3、Surgery is a direct method for treating brain cancer. For primary brain cancer, surgery can be applied to cut the tumor to maximally eliminate cancer cell thoroughly and avoid cellular proliferation after surgery to further prevent brain cancer recurrence. Such treatment is commonly used while the potential of recurrence after surgery is relatively high.
