Part of speech Noun phrase
Definition New and abnormal growth of tissue in the brain, which may be benign or cancerous.
Loss of the ability cells have to control their growth so that they divide too often and without any order. The extra cells form a mass of tissue called a tumor. Which may be benign or malignant. Benign brain tumors do not contain cancer cells; they can usually be removed, and they are not likely to recur. Benign brain tumors have clear borders, but they can cause symptoms. Malignant brain tumors, instead contain cancer cells. They interfere with vital functions and are life-threatening. Malignant brain tumors are likely to grow rapidly and invade the tissue around them.
