Understanding brain tumours
Brain tumours are quite complex - at present, over 130 different types of 'high grade' (cancerous) or 'low grade' (non-cancerous) brain tumours are known.
Find key information about brain tumours in adults and children including symptoms, diagnosis and treatments, and read advice on living with, or caring for someone with, a brain tumour.
Our Understanding brain tumours pages aim to provide information for everyone, whether you are directly affected by a brain tumour or not. If you are directly affected by this disease, this information may help you in a number of ways. For example, it may give you a better idea of what to expect from your treatment, help you ask your doctor the right questions or it could provide you with suggestions on how to manage any symptoms and side-effects you may experience.
