Brain Tumor Center

If your child has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, it is important to understand that these tumors typically do not appear in the same way in children as they do in adults. Also, because children's brains are rapidly developing, they need treatments from specialists familiar with the complexities of pediatric brain tumors.

Here at the Brain Tumor Center at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, your child will receive care from many of the world's most experienced pediatric brain tumor specialists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and internationally recognized pediatric subspecialists at Boston Children's Hospital.
