Overview

Cancers of the brain are usually caused by abnormal growths of cells in or around the brain. They can become present one of two ways: Through affected primary brain cells (cells that form other parts of your brain) or spreading from a secondary part of your body by way of your bloodstream.

Not all brain tumors are cancerous. There are many cases when benign tumors are present in the brain. They can still cause a unique set of symptoms and will still need addressed by a team of medical professionals.

Malignant (cancerous) brain tumors grow quickly and spread rapidly. They’ll spread in to healthy tissue and take over. Since your brain is resting in the confines of your skull, this can cause an increase in pressure and cause your brain to start functioning incorrectly.

Traditionally, tumors that develop in the brain do not spread throughout your body the way other cancers might.
