Brain Tumors

A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain. Brain tumors can be cancerous (malignant) like glioblastoma, medulloblastoma, metastasis, etc. or non-cancerous (benign) like meningioma, schwannoma etc.  As these tumors grow, they increase the pressure inside the brain and may be life-threatening many times.
