Meningioma is a one of the more common forms of brain cancer, accounting for more than one third of all primary brain tumors. The majority of these tumors are benign, or noncancerous, and have favorable outcomes. That said, it’s still normal to have lots of questions after being diagnosed with meningioma, especially pertaining to survival rates and treatment options. It’s also normal to feel worried and anxious and to wonder where you can turn for support.
