  • Question: Is it true and possible that a tumor that shrinks or disappears after radiation treatment is radioresponsive? Is it possible for a brain tumor to disappear after radiation treatment?
  • Answer:05/10/2004
    It certainly can happen. In my experience, I have seen complete resolution of metastases, and other cancers. Several glioblastomas and meningiomas have totally disappeared, and a few other tumors. We use fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery to achieve these results.
