There are around 130 types of Brain Tumours.
Brain Tumours can form throughout the brain and spinal cord.
Brain Tumours are classified as either benign or malignant.
The benign ones tend to grow more slowly and are less likely to come back if they’ve been completely removed.
The malignant ones tend to grow faster, sometimes spread and may come back after treatment.
They’re both treated in similar ways.
The exact care you receive depends on what type of tumour you have, where it is in the brain and how big it is.
