Abstract

Brain metastases represent a critical stage of oncological disease and its frequency has increased over the recent years. The treatment of brain metastases has moved from a conservative approach to an active management that should be individualized for each patient. In cases of single brain metastasis, surgery or radiosurgery should be considered as first option for treatment. In cases of multiple lesions, whole-brain radiotherapy is the standard of care. The aim of this review is to present general aspects including new approaches in the management of patients with brain metastases.
