A tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells. Brain tumors are classified as primary, which start in the brain, or secondary, which start in another part of the body and spread (metastasize) to the brain. Primary brain tumors can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Secondary brain tumors (metastatic brain tumors) are malignant and are more common. Either benign or malignant brain tumors may require treatment because, as they grow, they press on normal brain structures in the confined space inside the skull.
