Lymphoma is a less common malignant brain tumor and more commonly seen in the elderly. It will often present suddenly with a loss of neurologic function, confusion, forgetfulness, or a deficit again, such as speech problems or weakness.

Patients are typically treated with surgical biopsy followed by steroids and other treatments including chemotherapy, radiation, and novel clinical trials.
