Brain tumors are divided into two categories: primary tumors and metastatic tumors. Primary tumors begin in the brain cells, the brain’s immediate surroundings and membranes, the pituitary or pineal glands or in the cranial nerves. These primary tumors can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Both types of these tumors can cause serious problems. Metastatic tumors originally form in another part of the body – often in the breast or lungs, then spread to the brain. These secondary tumors are cancerous and commonly strike adults.

A spine tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue within or surrounding the spinal cord and/or spinal column. These cells can grow and multiply uncontrollably. Symptoms can include numbness or muscle weakness in the legs, arms or chest, difficulty walking, excessive pain, loss of bowel or bladder function, paralysis, or scoliosis.

Spinal tumors can be benign or malignant. The primary tumors originate in the spine or spinal cord, while secondary or metastatic tumors result from cancer spreading from another location of the body to the spine. Spine tumors may be referred to the basic regions of the spine such as cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacrum.

Brain and spine tumors can be treated with chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. The treatment options depend on the type, location and size of the tumor along with the age, size and condition of the patient
