JLA question ID 0060/24
Explanatory note There are some very specific short and long term effects from therapies for those with a brain tumour, which can have a big impact on how young people get to live their lives, for example, in terms of employment, and the 'job' they can do as opposed to what they wanted to do. More clinical trials, that consider quality of life and survival, are required.
