Meningioma


Tumor that grows from the meninges (covering) of the brain and spinal cord. These can occur in many different brain locations and can cause symptoms depending on the size of the tumor and the location. They are often benign and rarely spread, although some can be more aggressive and malignant. Surgical resection can be curable for some patients, while others may be best treated with irradiation approaches. In some patients both open surgery and radiation may be required.
