Brain tumors can manifest as either benign or malignant growths within the brain. Primary tumors originate within the brain itself, whereas secondary tumors metastasize from other parts of the body. Symptoms can vary based on factors such as the tumor’s type, size, and location, often including headaches, seizures, and cognitive alterations.

Diagnosis typically entails neurological evaluations and imaging procedures such as MRIs or CT scans, occasionally followed by a biopsy for confirmation. Treatment options encompass surgical intervention, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or targeted medications. Recent advancements like awake brain surgery and stereotactic radiosurgery aim to enhance treatment efficacy. Timely detection plays a pivotal role in improving prognosis.
