  I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "aggressive", but any phyical abuse or threats of violence should be taken very seriously and not tolerated!  If law enforcement needs to be involved, so be it.  Best of luck,

i understand the aggressive part, my wife is going through this with her 2 tumors causing pressure to the frontsl lobes and it disturbs the behavioral area of the brain and she can say things out of character or be on top of our kids and everything they do or i do is wrong.  For her she is on steroids for long time high doses and this also related to side effects and she is in pain and confused that adds to overall agitation. Somtimes she realizes it and feels bad and somtimes she never remebers she said anythng harsh. I always comfort my wife and remind her its not her fault it all these meds and the disease, i worry about her feeling guilty and added stress is somthing we want to avoid. the doctor gave her Cymbalta to help with sleep mood and headaches, it took a few weeks to kick in and it did help her manage it all inside and we saw an effect of mellowness in her mood. unfortunelty she was taken off it and she needed more steroids so now its hard fr her again

Is there a social worker at the cancer center or hospital where he has been seeen? They may be able to give some suggestions of what needs to be done or ways to help him. Sorry to hear this news. I'm sure it's a difficult time for all.

I don't understand the word *wut*

Brain cancer can cause personality changes, including aggression.

This has happened to my husband as radiation caused  a slight aquired brain injury. He was emotionally up and down, very agitated and frustrated. He sobbed easily, particularly when watching movies or hearing something sad. His filters were off kilter.. His agressive behaviour was verbal and mainly in a defensive mode. It took 6 months of trying different antipsychotic medications to return to his old self. He found it very hard living with himself and hurting those he loved. To help, when he felt agitsted, he would go outside to garden before his antisocial  behaviour kicked in.
