A tumor is a mass of abnormal cells that may or may not be cancerous, and can be especially harmful when located in the brain or spine. Every brain tumor is as unique as every patient. Some require no treatment, only watchful monitoring. Other tumors require an aggressive treatment plan. Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or a combination of these approaches.
