I completely understand your worries when it comes to this matter. The cause of brain cancer is not clear, so the best step to take would be to stay on top of the monitoring process. Early diagnosis and treatment of tumors can help reduce the possibility of them becoming metastatic. This link may be helpful with explaining more in depth about brain cancer and the causes, symptoms, and the risk factors.
