Brain Tumor Prevention
In general, risk factors for primary brain tumors are unavoidable. However, since most brain tumors are secondary, having originated elsewhere, anything that reduces the incidence of cancer will reduce the incidence of brain tumors.
The single most important behavior to avoid is smoking, which is implicated in up to 30 different kinds of cancer. WellStar supports smoking cessation programs and will endeavor to help patients who want to stop smoking through a variety of cessation efforts. Different approaches work for different people, and WellStar experts can help tailor a cessation program that will enhance your likelihood successfully quitting.
