What is Brain Tumor?

A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of cells within the brain. Tumors can originate in the brain itself (primary tumors) or spread to the brain from other parts of the body (metastatic tumors). Brain tumors can be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and they can cause a range of symptoms depending on their location, size, and type. Common symptoms include headaches, seizures, cognitive changes, balance problems, and neurological deficits.
