What is Brain Cancer:
Brain cancer is a disease of the brain in which cancer cells (malignant) arise in the brain tissue. Cancer cells grow to form a mass of cancer tissue (tumor) that interferes with brain functions such as muscle control, sensation, memory, and other normal body functions. Tumors composed of cancer cells are called malignant tumors, and those composed of mainly noncancerous cells are called benign tumors.
Primary brain tumors are classified by the type of cell or tissue the tumor affects, and the location and grade of the tumor. Tumor cells may travel short distances within the brain, but generally won’t travel outside of the brain itself.

Causes of Brain Cancer:
There is no known cause of brain cancer. Extensive research has been conducted to pinpoint a cause to help prevent the cancer from occurring. Although there has not been very much conclusive evidence leading to a cause of brain cancer, the one thing that doctors do know is that brain cancer is not contagious and it does not occur due to head injury. There are known instances where cancer has spread to the brain from other parts of the body. (Lung cancer, Breast cancer, Liver cancer and so on.).
Treatments for Brain Cancer:
Brain tumor treatments include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy and steroids. Different types of tumour need different treatments. Home remedies that have been listed in various sources as possibly helpful for Brain cancer may include:
* Stress Management.
