What Causes a Brain Tumor?

Primary brain tumors occur in the brain itself or tissues surrounding it, such as cranial nerves, meninges, and pineal or pituitary gland. These tumors begin when normal body cells undergo DNA mutations, allowing new cells to grow and multiply at incredible rates and replace healthy body cells. This creates a mass of abnormal cells in the brain, forming a tumor.

On the other hand, secondary brain and spine tumors occur in people who have been diagnosed with cancer in some other part of the body, and that have spreads to the brain or spine. These are called Metastatic brain tumors.

Common Cancers that can Affect the Brain

Common types of cancer that have the potential to spread to the brain and spine include:

  • Colon cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Renal cancer
  • Melanoma
