Understanding Brain Tumors

An estimated 700,000 Americans are living with some type of brain tumor and nearly 80,000 people will be diagnosed with a primary brain tumor this year.  There are more than 120 different types of primary brain and CNS tumors. 

There are over 150 types of brain tumors. They are divided into two primary categories. First, a primary tumor has grown from a type of cell in the brain itself. The second type is a metastatic tumor that comes from somewhere else in the body – from a type of cancer cell that has grown in the body and found its way via the blood stream or through a direct extension. Symptoms of a brain tumor include headaches, weakness, numbness, stroke or seizure.
