What is a Brain Tumor?

Brain tumors affect people of all ages, ethnicities and genders. A tumor is a mass of abnormal cells. Tumors may be cancerous or noncancerous and can occur within the brain or along the spinal cord. 

Primary brain tumors start in the brain. Metastatic tumors begin elsewhere in the body and spread to the brain or spine. Many types of tumors can affect the brain and spine, including: 

  • Acoustic neuroma
  • Astrocytoma
  • Glioblastoma
  • Glioma 
  • Medulloblastoma
  • Meningioma
  • Pituitary tumors

Brain Tumor Diagnosis

Our team diagnoses brain and spine tumors using physical and neurological exams, biopsies and imaging scans like CTs and MRIs. The tests help doctors grade the tumor and recommend treatment.

Your care team works together to determine treatment that’s right for you. Brain and spine tumor treatment may include:

  • Chemotherapy
