My dad had an operation over a year ago to remove a benign brain tumour, then two months later he was diagnosed with an aggressive malignant brain tumour. He has since had most of it removed and is now battling through treatment. Apparently this is very rare. Has anyone heard of this happening?

Thanks everyone
Kylie Isherwood

Hi Kylie,

It is reasonably common for brain tumours to become more aggressive, going from Stage I through to IV.

Perhaps the rarity is the relatively short time period involved between the diagnosis of benign/malignant?

I hope he is doing well.
