There are over 150 types of brain tumors. They are divided into two primary categories. First, a primary tumor has grown from a type of cell in the brain itself. The second type is a metastatic tumor that comes from somewhere else in the body – from a type of cancer cell that has grown in the body and found its way via the blood stream or through a direct extension. Symptoms of a brain tumor include headaches, weakness, numbness, stroke or seizure. Brain tumors are largely not related to lifestyle choices. However, smoking and genetics can be factors in the development of a brain tumor. For treatment your neurosurgeon will help map treatment options taking into consideration factors such as your age and size and location of the tumor. Dr. Ravi Gandhi – Board Certified Neuorosurgen explains types of brain tumors, symptoms and treatments. View Video
