Caption: Brain tumour. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of the human brain, showing a tumour. At upper centre is the tumour (blue) occupying a large area in one of the cerebral hemispheres. A brain tumour is an abnormal growth in or on the brain which is not always cancerous (malignant). Primary tumours develop directly from tissues inside the skull, of which about 60% are gliomas within the brain; most other primary tumours arise from membranes which cover the brain. Secondary tumours are always malignant and spread via the blood from tumours elsewhere in the body. Brain tumours produce compression and tissue damage. When possible they are surgically removed.
