Interesting to note this critical statistic about "benign" brain turmors from an article on the safety of dental x-rays (from The Economist).
Even a “benign” meningioma can kill. Around 30% do so within five years of diagnosis.
Who knew? That's a significant reason why you'd want to make sure that a "benign" brain tumour is covered by your trauma policy... and perhaps reconsider your next dental x-ray.
Some companies do not cover brain tumours, some cover them but require in the definition that surgery is needed before a payment is made. Others limit the payment to only 10% of the sum insured.
