A brain tumor is a collection (or mass) of abnormal cells in the brain. The skull is very rigid and the brain is enclosed, so any growth inside such a restricted space can cause problems. Brain tumors can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). When benign or malignant tumors grow they can cause the pressure inside the skull to increase. This can cause brain damage and even death. Brain tumors are categorized as primary or secondary. Primary brain tumors originate in the brain. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, about half of primary brain tumors are benign. Secondary brain tumors occur when cancer cells spread to the brain from another organ such as the lung or breast.
