What are Brain Tumors?

Brain tumors are masses of abnormal cells that have grown out of control. Although brain tumors rarely spread to other parts of the body, most of them can spread through the brain tissue. Even so-called benign tumors can, as they grow, destroy and compress normal brain tissue, causing damage that is often disabling and sometimes fatal. For this reason, doctors often speak of "brain tumors" rather than "brain cancers."
