Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help. I am struggling writing about the ethics of standard treatment for brain tumors. For instance, what role does money play in the choice of cancer treatment for brain tumors (along the lines of ethics) and how could I question cancer ethics?

Have a look at NICE guidelines for cancer drug approval and their use of QUALYs (quality-adjusted life years) - this obviously has some ethical assumptions about how life should be valued and what makes life valuable. You could also search medical ethics journals, like the Journal of Medical Ethics, or the AMA Journal of Ethics, to get an idea of some of the literature available.
