Brain tumor treatment
There are more than 40 different types of brain tumors, but there are two groups in neuro-oncology – benign and malignant. Benign tumours grow slowly and are unlikely to spread. Most common types of benign cancers are meningiomas, neuromas and pituitary tumours, as well as craniopharyngiomas. Malignant tumours are cancerous, and they can spread to other parts of the brain or spinal cord. Most known malignant tumours are astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, glioblastomas and mixed gliomas. In this page we will take a look into most known benign brain tumours. It is important to recognise the first signs of a possible brain tumour in order to take an immediate action if needed, therefore we have included a short overview of tumour symptoms, too.
