Brain cancer or brain tumors is an abnormal growth of cells in the brain. brain tumors can grow and spread aggressively to distant parts of the body as well. Tumors are of two types malignant and benign. tumors that do not spread or invade nearby tissues are called benign. Benign tumors are less harmful as compared to malignant ones, but a benign tumor can cause problems in the brain by pressing on a nearby tissue.

Brain tumors that originate in brain cells are called primary brain tumors . The most common primary brain tumors are gliomas, menin-giomas, pituitary adenomas, vestibular schwannomas, and primitive neuroectodermal tumors (medulloblastomas). The term glioma includes glioblastomas, astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, and ependymomas. At Apollo Lucknow, we have best specialists for treatment of Brain Tumors & Brain Cancers.
