1Wide Number of Brain Tumors
As earlier stated, brain cancer can emanate from the body or from a tumor already in the brain. Also, not all the brain tumors are malignant. With over 120 types of brain tumors on record, it is very easy to assume that any tumor in the head can cause cancer. Benign tumors grow slowly and rarely spread to other parts of the brain but are hazardous and require proper treatment.
On the other hand, malignant tumors grow very fast and are often life threatening. The rate at which they grow at is stupendous too with multiple hospitals reporting patients to have succumbed to brain cancer barely 10 days after a diagnosis. A particular tumor, called glioblastoma is regarded the most aggressive. There are many types of brain tumors, but not all of them cause brain cancer.
