I'm wonder what the survival rate is for a brain stem tumor in an adult male if 
symtoms included vomiting and headaches...treatment after surgery includes 
radiology treatments and chemo pills. If it was so large that some of it could 
be removed surgically, but not fully because of its' being on the brain stem... 
how likely is it that an adult male would survive for 5 years or longer?
