Brain metastasis and leptomeningeal disease are collectively referred to as central nervous system or CNS metastasis.
Brain tumors that originate in the brain and not the breast are called primary brain tumors, and may include meningiomas, gliomas, and glioblastomas, among others. Brain metastasis from breast cancer are treated differently than tumors that originate in the brain. However, there are some treatment modalities including radiation, surgery, and chemotherapies that work effectively in both.
