Brain tumor

A brain tumor is a growth in the brain that leads to increased pressure inside the skull and the destruction and compression of normal brain tissue, causing loss of function. A brain tumor may cause headaches and seizures, as well as many other nervous system problems.

Treatment may involve radiation, chemotherapy, and/or surgery.
