Brain tumours: incidence, survival, and aetiology

Brain tumours: incidence, survival, and aetiology

Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry 75(Suppl. 2): Ii12-Ii17

The term "brain tumours" refers to a mixed group of neoplasms originating from intracranial tissues and the meninges with degrees of malignancy ranging from benign to aggressive. Each type of turnout has its own biology, treatment, and prognosis and each is likely to be caused by different risk factors. Even "benign" tumours can be lethal due to their site in the brain, their ability to infiltrate locally, and their propensity to transform to malignancy.
