Neuro System Tumors

Neuro system tumors involve the abnormal growth of cells in the brain or spine. These tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) and symptoms, if any, may manifest differently in every patient. Malignant tumors in the brain may spread to other parts of the body just as tumors elsewhere can spread to the brain. Treatment is largely dependent on the origin of the tumor.

We do not know why most brain and spinal cord tumors form in adults. Nor are all tumors surgically treatable. Following is more information on common neuro system tumors.
