Neuro-oncology is a rapidly evolving specialty involving the study of cancer and the nervous system. The nervous system can be affected by cancer directly, indirectly, or as a result of treatment-related adverse effects. The diagnosis and treatment of cancer of the nervous system require the skills of several medical disciplines to help patients with this serious and complex medical problem.
