Neurological Exam is the most common test performed in the case of brain cancer.

Neurological exam is designed to test if a person has brain cancer. During this exam the doctor checks hearing, vision, muscle strength, alertness, coordination and reflexes to know the status of brain functionality. A close eye exam is also done to see the whether the cancer is affecting the nerve connecting eyes to brain. Here a CT scan or MRI are other techniques that are used to check the presence of cancer.
