A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in the brain.
Many different types of brain tumors exist. Some brain tumors are noncancerous (benign), and some brain tumors are cancerous (malignant). Brain tumors can begin in the brain (primary brain tumors), or cancer can begin in other parts of the body and spread to the brain (secondary, or metastatic, brain tumors).
How quickly a brain tumor grows can vary greatly. The growth rate as well as location of a brain tumor determines how it affects the function of the nervous system.
Brain tumor treatment options depend on the type of brain tumor of the patient has, as well as its size and location.

Brain tumors are graded according to how fast they grow and how likely they are to grow back after treatment. Grade 1 and 2 tumors are low grade, and grade 3 and 4 tumors are high grade.
There are 2 main types of brain tumors:
Brain tumors that originates in the brain:
Primary brain tumors originate in the brain itself or in tissues close to it, such as in the brain-covering membranes (meninges), cranial nerves, pituitary gland or pineal gland.
Primary brain tumors begin when normal cells acquire errors (mutations) in their DNA. These mutations allow cells to grow and divide at increased rates and to continue living when healthy cells would die. The result is a mass of abnormal cells, which forms a tumor.
In adults, primary brain tumors are much less common than are secondary brain tumors, in which cancer begins elsewhere and spreads to the brain.
Many different types of primary brain tumors exist. Each gets its name from the type of cells involved. Examples include:
Cancer that begins elsewhere and spreads to the brain:
Secondary (metastatic) brain tumors are tumors that result from cancer that starts elsewhere in the body and then spreads (metastasizes) to the brain.
Secondary brain tumors most often occur in people who have a history of cancer. But in rare cases, a metastatic brain tumor may be the first sign of cancer that began elsewhere in the body.
In adults, secondary brain tumors are far more common than are primary brain tumors.
Any cancer can spread to the brain, but common types include:
A malignant brain tumour contains cancer cells which grow into the healthy brain tissue and interferes with the function of the brain. Malignant brain tumours are likely to grow rapidly and re-occur. Malignant tumours are given grade levels that represent how abnormal the tumour cells look and how fast they might grow.
A benign brain tumour does not contain cancer cells. Benign tumours press on sensitive areas in the brain and cause symptoms. They do not invade surrounding brain tissue. They are not likely to grow back once surgically removed.
Symptoms of brain tumor are usually location and size specific. Location of the tumor plays a big part in behaviour and/or physical changes:
Brain tumors can affect people of any age, including children, although they tend to be more common in older adults. Generally, around 15 out of every 100 people with a cancerous brain tumor will survive for 10 years or more after being diagnosed and hence, early diagnosis is key for maximum chances of recovery. Survival rates are difficult to predict because brain tumors are uncommon and there are many different types, but in spite of this, quick and early diagnosis can initiate prompt treatment and save a life.
The causes of most brain tumors are unknown, but there are several risk factors which may increase the chances of developing a brain tumor, which include:
The cause of brain tumours are unknown, with most occurring spontaneously. There are a small number of tumours which genetically occur within a family line.
For a brain tumor, the prognosis depends on several factors, including:
The treatment also depends on:
Treatments for brain tumors include:
After being diagnosed with a brain tumor, steroids may be prescribed to help reduce swelling around the tumor.
Other medicines can be used to help with other symptoms of brain tumors, such as anti-epileptic medicines for seizures and painkillers for headaches.
Surgery is often used to remove brain tumors. The aim is to remove as much abnormal tissue as safely as possible.
