Brain tumours arise in the central nervous system and may have formed in the brain tissue itself (primary brain tumour) or spread from elsewhere in the body (secondary brain tumour or metastases). Some can grow slowly, others more quickly. They can be malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous).
Different types of brain tumours require slightly different treatment. The most appropriate treatment will be influenced by the tumour’s type, grade, size and location.
At Nova Healthcare we’re able to offer comprehensive and pioneering treatments for brain tumours, which include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and Gamma Knife ® or stereotactic radiosurgery.
Further information about brain tumours can be accessed through the Macmillan Cancer Care website or by downloading the booklet to the right.
