Brain & Spinal Cancer
Brain and spinal cord tumors are masses of abnormal cells within the brain and/or spinal cord. Brain tumors rarely spread to other parts of the body, however, most can spread through the brain tissue. Because brain tumors, even benign masses, can grow and destroy normal brain tissue, most cases are referred to as brain tumors, rather than brain cancer. The main concerns for brain and spinal cord tumors are the rate at which they grow, how fast they are spreading, their location, and if they can be removed. Although malignant tumors are more rare than benign brain tumors, benign cases can be just as dangerous. Their ability to grow and create pressure on the brain can make them life-threatening.
