What is a Brain Tumour

What is a Brain Tumour

A brain tumour is a collection of cells that grow abnormally in the brain or central spinal canal. There are two types on brain tumours ? primary and secondary.

A primary brain tumour is a tumour that starts in the brain and has not spread from somewhere else in the body. Primary tumours can be benign which means that it will not spread, or it can be malignant which means that it may spread into other parts of the brain and cause problems. A secondary brain tumour is a tumour that has grown because there are cancer cells somewhere else in the body that have spread to the brain.
