Brain Tumours

Brain tumours are abnormal growths that are located within the skull and may involve the brain substance itself. There are many different types of brain tumours – some arise from cells within the brain and spinal cord (primary brain tumour), while others originate from other parts of the body and spread into the brain (metastatic or secondary brain tumour). In general, brain tumours may give rise to symptoms, such as headaches and stroke-like symptoms due to pressure on the brain (mass effect), swelling (oedema) or bleeding; or cause abnormal electrical activity within the brain, leading to seizures.
