@Johnsonaudrey4gmailcom Welcome to Connect.
To stage a cancer, your health care team requires a number of pieces of information that they get from a physical exam, diagnostic test and usually examining tissue from the tumor. Here’s some information about brain tumor staging http://www.cancer.org/cancer/braincnstumorsinadults/detailedguide/brain-and-spinal-cord-tumors-in-adults-staging

Examining the tissue is an important part of determining the stage and to help plan the best treatment.

What type of procedure will they be doing? A needle biopsy or an open biopsy?
