An abnormal growth of cells in the brain causes brain tumours. The tumours can be broadly divided into two categories: benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). Benign brain tumours grow and press on nearby areas of the brain. They rarely spread into other tissues and may recur (come back). Malignant brain tumours are likely to grow quickly and spread into other brain tissue.

The tumours can either originate from the brain (primary tumours), or can originate from any other part of the body and then spread to the brain (metastatic tumours). Metastatic tumours are more common.

The tumours are graded from grade I to grade 4 depending upon the cell kind and other characteristics such as speed of growth, tendency to spread, etc.

Some of the types of brain tumors are: Glioma, Meningioma, Schwannoma, Ependymoma, Craniopharyngioma, Pituitary tumors, etc.
