About Brain Tumours
The brain is a complicated and fascinating part of human anatomy, which many of us only understand at a very basic level.
A brain tumour is composed of abnormal growths of tissue (cells) found inside the brain itself.
The symptoms of a brain tumour will depend partly on its size and type, but they are predominantly determined by its location.
The three main treatments are surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
