Introduction Malignant brain tumors survivors BTS can experience a number of symptoms including fatigue, emotional distress, and cognitive changes e.g., memory problems years following primary treatment. The magnitude of symptom burden in BTS and the relationship between these symptoms and cognitive limitations is unclear. Methods Factors associated with patient reported cognitive limitations PRCL were investigated in BTS n138 and a non-cancer comparison group NCCG n155 using a web-based survey. Measures of demographics, medical factors, physical fatigue, depressive and anxiety symptoms, and factors impacting such symptoms e.g., health behaviors and problem solving orientation were measured to determine their association to PRCL.
