Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If brain tumor is extensive and not resectable then supportive and palliative care is all one can offer. Please consult a neurosurgeon and let them decide what is best for your patient.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
