Brain tumor

Being diagnosed with a brain tumor, or even suspecting a brain tumor as the cause of a neurological disorder, can be frightening. The good news is that about half of all brain tumors are benign and can be successfully treated.

Each year, more than 100,000 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor or spinal cord tumor. Brain tumors can happen to anyone. While they occur across all age groups, they appear more frequently in children under the age of 15 and in older adults. Adults are more likely to have a metastatic brain tumor, while spinal cord tumors seem to occur more in younger adults.
