In the UK just over 9,000 people a year are diagnosed with a primary brain or central nervous system tumour. Not all tumours are malignant (cancerous) as they can be benign (non cancerous). Brain tumours are graded from 1 to 4 depending on their behaviour.
- Benign brain tumours are graded low (1 or 2), meaning they are slow growing and less likely to return after treatment.
- Malignant brain tumours are graded high (3 or 4) and can either be primary tumours (starting in the brain) or secondary tumours, having spread to the brain from elsewhere.
