What Are Brain and Spine Tumors?
Brain and spinal cord (also known as central nervous system) tumors can be benign or malignant.
Tumors that start in the brain or spinal cord are termed primary brain or spinal cord tumors. If they start in another part of the body and spread to the brain or spinal cord, they are called metastatic or secondary to the brain or spinal cord.
Brain tumor treatment options depend on the type of brain tumor you have, as well as its size and location.
