Screening is a way to evaluate people without symptoms of a disease to determine if they are at risk for or have already developed that disease. Screening involves assessing your medical history and lifestyle habits that may increase or decrease your risk of a disease, and having tests to identify early signs of a disease.
There are no screening guidelines or screening tests for brain tumors.
