Some Quick Facts About Brain Cancer
- Brain tumors are often difficult to diagnose because their signs and symptoms may mimic those of other disorders. Symptoms will also vary according to the exact location of the tumor.
- Paediatric brain tumours are not the same as those in adults. Children’s brain tumours require specific research and different treatments.
- Most brain tumours tend not to metastasise or spread to distant areas in other parts of the body outside the brain and/or spinal cord (CNS). They do, however, tend to recur locally, or spread to other areas of the CNS.
