      I don't think we have enough information to state either way. I have noticed an increase in brain tumors posted on the board. I think it is because more people are doing Ipi and the baseline scans require a brain MRI. This is how I found my brain mets two months ago.

      You can't find brain mets if you are not looking for them.
