Benign Brain Tumour
Benign Brain Tumour – Non-Cancerous
Brain tumours develop when brain cells start to proliferate uncontrollably. Brain tumours may be malignant (cancer) or benign (not cancer) (cancer). Most benign tumours develop gradually and do not spread to other body regions. A benign brain tumour will develop symptoms as it progresses.
The skull holds your brain in place securely. The pressure on the brain is caused by any size tumour growing there or inside of it. This is dangerous. In some situations, this pressure can be life-threatening and generates symptoms. Treatment for benign brain tumours is to relieve both the pressure and the symptoms it is generating.
