  • IntroductionA brain tumor, or tumour, is anintracranial solid neoplasm, atumor within the brain or thecentral spinal canal.Braintumors include all tumorsinside the cranium or in thecentral spinal canal. They arecreated by an abnormal anduncontrolled cell division,usually in the brain itself, butalso in lymphatic tissue, inblood vessels, in the cranialnerves, in the brain envelopes,skull, pituitary gland, or pinealgland.
  • Types of brain tumorGlioma :A glioma is a type of tumorthat starts in the brain orspine. It is called a gliomabecause it arises from glialcells. The most common siteof gliomas is thebrain.Symptoms of gliomasdepend on which part of thecentral nervous system isaffected. A brain glioma cancause headaches, nausea andvomiting, seizures, and cranialnerve disorders as a result ofincreased intracranialpressure.
  • MeningiomasMeningiomas are a diverseset of tumors arising fromthe meninges, themembranous layerssurrounding the centralnervous system.They arisefrom the arachnoid cap cellsof the arachnoid villi in themeninges.These tumors areusually benign in nature;however, a smallpercentage are malignant.
  • Pituitary AdenomaPituitary adenomas arenoncancerous tumorsthat occur in the pituitarygland. Pituitary adenomasare generally divided intothree categoriesdependant upon theirbiological functioning:benign adenoma, invasiveadenoma or carcinomas.
