Brain stem is the central trunk of the brain, consisting of medulla oblongata, pons and mid brain, and continuing towards the spinalcord. When the brain is affected by the cancer, cells grow indefinitely and size of the brain increases. But the cranium prevents the expansion of brain and results in the brainstem compression. Patients with this syndrome experience severe head ache and other common brain tumour symptoms.
