What is a Brain Tumour?

A mass of abnormal cells in the brain tissue due to uncontrolled multiplication and accumulation is a brain tumour. These can be non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant) and may vary in shape and size.

With a 120 types accounting for a staggering statistic of 85-90% of all primary tumours of the nervous system, brain tumours are the new bane of mankind’s existence, what with it being the prime cause of solid cancer-related mortality in children below the age of 20.

What is a Brain Tumour?

Why does it happen?

  • Family history, ~5-10% of all cases
  • Age
  • Chemical Exposure, at home or a workplace
  • Radiation Exposure, from medical treatments or due to a nuclear fallout
  • No history of chicken pox



Originates in the brain itself i.e May develop from brain cells, nerves, et all. These can be:


  • Cancerous
  • Aggressive, fast-growing
  • May result in permanent disability or even death
  • Of these, the most common are ‘Gliomas’, which make up ~78% of all cases
  • Astrocytomas, ependymomas, glioblastoma multiforme, medulloblastomas and oligodendrogliomas are all types of these ‘gliomas’.


  • Non-cancerous
  • Not as aggressive
  • Slow-growing
  • May compress normal brain cells and functions due to increased size
  • These include: chordomas, cranipharyngiomas, gangliocitomas, meningiomas, pituitary adenomas


  • Aka Metastatic Brain Tumours - which spread to other parts of the body
  • 1 in 4 brain tumour patients are likely to have a metastatic brain tumour
