In simple terms, brain cancer can be defined as an uncontrolled or abnormal growth of cells, which over a period of time, form into a lump in or around the brain.

This tumor in the brain or brain tumor results in an intense degree of pain and suffering in its patients.

Basically, there are two types of brain cancer:

Primary and secondary.

Brain cancers have a high potential of turning fatal. Among the most deadly form of brain cancer is glioblastoma multiforme as it is incurable.

A brain tumor is an intracranial solid neoplasm, a tumor (defined as an abnormal growth of cells) within the brain or the central spinal canal.

Some tumors are brain cancers. Brain tumors include all tumors inside the human skull (cranium) or in the central spinal canal.

They are created by an abnormal and uncontrolled cell division, usually in the brain itself, but also in lymphatic tissue, in blood vessels, in the cranial nerves, in the brain envelopes (meninges), skull, pituitary gland, or pineal gland.

Within the brain itself, the involved cells may be neurons or glial cells (which include astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymal cells).
