Brain tumors are abnormal growths of cells in the brain. Such growths are commonly called brain tumors, not all brain tumors are cancer. Like all cells of the body, tumor cells require blood and nutrients to make it through. In general, a benign tumor is less major than a malignant tumor. In the U.

The symptoms of a brain tumour depend on where it is in the brain. If you have symptoms of a brain tumour that do not go away, see a GP. The higher the number, the more serious a tumour is: grade 1 and 2 brain tumours are non-cancerous tumors that tend to grow rather slowly; quality 3 and 4 brain tumours are malignant tumors that grow quicker and are harder to deal with. Brain tumors are called primary and secondary. If you are identified with a malignant brain tumor, the wellness specialist looking after your treatment will review therapy options with you. Therapy for a brain tumor aims to eliminate as much of it as possible and try to quit it returning.
