We just found out a couple weeks ago that my mother has lung cancer known as Squamous or something like that.  To find out that this type of cancer is usually also found in the brain which in our case the Brain scan showed multiple tumors or masses.  They started her on radiation treatments this past wednesday and they are going to do 10 treatments  then wait a week and start her on chemo.  When they do the radiation treatments daily can they monitor whether or not that what they are treating on the brain is working or not or do they just zap the whole brain?  she seems to have more memory loss since the treatments started bthan she had before hand.
