- Question: Since it is possible for a brain tumor to dissappear after radiation therapy treatment, I would like to know how soon can this result be seen. Could it take a little more than a year or sooner?
Since it is usually a sign of a very sensitize tumor, often it occurs rapidly.
Also I have seen tumors that disappear three to five years later.
