Brain tumors come in two forms: benign or malignant growths that originate in the brain. Primary tumors develop within the brain, whereas secondary tumors spread from other parts of the body. Symptoms vary depending on factors such as tumor type, size, and location and may manifest as headaches, seizures, or cognitive changes.

Diagnosis typically involves neurological assessments and imaging techniques such as MRIs or CT scans, occasionally followed by a biopsy. Treatment options encompass surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or targeted medications. Recent advancements, including awake brain surgery and stereotactic radiosurgery, aim to enhance treatment efficacy. Timely detection plays a pivotal role in improving prognosis.
