Hay muy poco que usted pueda hacer para evitar los tumores cerebrales primarios. Usted no puede hacer nada acerca de su herencia, la cual es uno de los pocos factores de riesgo conocidos. Es deseable evitar la radiación y las toxinas, a menos que la radiación se use para tratar un tipo de cáncer. Aunque es difícil reducir su riesgo de tumores cerebrales primarios, usted puede reducir su riesgo de tumores que podrían propagarse al cerebro, incluyendo pulmonares , mamarios , melanomas , y prostáticos.
