A brain tumor, known as an intracranial tumor, is an abnormal mass of tissue in which cells grow and multiply uncontrollably, seemingly unchecked by the mechanisms that control normal cells. More than different brain tumors have been documented, but the two main groups of brain tumors are termed primary and metastatic.
Primary intracranial tumors of the brain structures, including meninges, are rare with an overall five-year survival rate of %; they are collectively called primary brain tumors.
Proven risk. Symptoms. Signs and symptoms of a meningioma typically begin gradually and may be very subtle at first. Depending on where in the brain or, rarely, spine the tumor is situated, signs and symptoms may include: Changes in vision, such as seeing double or blurriness; Headaches, especially those that are worse in the morning.

Brain tumor symptoms include headaches, nausea or vomiting, balance and walking problems, mood and personality changes, memory problems, and numbness or tingling in the legs.
Learn about surgery, types of brain tumors, and other treatments. Expert Treatment for Benign and Malignant Brain Tumors. Benign brain tumors grow slowly, tend to not spread to other areas of the body and have defined borders.
Malignant tumors, in contrast, grow quickly and are more invasive. Both may be considered life threatening, depending upon their location and if they interfere with vital bodily functions. There are over types of brain and central nervous system tumors. Brain and spinal cord tumors are different for everyone.
They form in different areas, develop from different cell types, and may have different treatment options. Learn more about tumor types. Symptoms and Diagnosis.
