This is a mass of abnormal cells. It may be inside your brain, or it may be next to your brain. It can grow and press harmfully against healthy brain tissue. This can cause a wide range of problems throughout your body. A brain tumor can severely impact your life.


 

 

 

 

 


 Glioblastoma Multiforme


Meningiomas

This is a tumor in your meninges. These thin layers of protective tissue surround your brain and spinal cord. Most meningiomas are not cancerous. They usually grow slowly.

 

Metastatic Brain Tumors

These tumors, also called secondary brain tumors, originate outside of the brain in another part of the body and then spread to the brain. These tumors are more common in adults than in children.

 

Pituitary Tumors

Your pituitary gland is found just under your brain. This pea-sized gland makes hormones that affect many of your body's functions. A pituitary tumor can cause it to release too much or too little of these hormones. This can cause serious problems.
