WHAT IS A BRAIN TUMOUR?
A brain tumour is the development of abnormal cells in the brain. There are mainly two types of brain tumours:
1. Primary brain tumour( comes from the brain)
2. Secondary brain tumour( cause due to the spread of different cancer)
Studies have shown that primary brain tumours are 70% non-cancerous and 30% cancerous which most of the time are cured through surgery. As the cause of brain tumours is less than 5% but that doesn’t mean it is harmful. Some Brain tumours can cause serious cancer which cannot be cured at all.

Brian’s tumour can be identified through an MRI scan, CT scan, angiography and pet scan. The doctor says that surgery is the best way to begin tumours. Nowadays, operations are mostly held through a microscope with computer guidance which is also called navigation.
