Caption: Brain tumour. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of an axial section through the brain of a 42 year old woman, showing a metastatic tumour. At centre left is the tumour (crimson) surrounded by damaged fluid-filled tissue (red). This tumour occurs within one cerebral hemisphere; the other hemisphere is at right. The eyeballs are at top (yellow). Metastatic cancer is a secondary disease spread from cancer elsewhere in the body. The patient had primary cancer of the colon. Metastatic brain tumours are malignant. Typically they cause brain compression and nerve damage. Surgical removal may be possible.
