About brain tumours

Brain tumours are quite complex. At present, over 130 different types of 'high grade' (cancerous) or 'low grade' (non-cancerous) brain tumours are known.

Although they're relatively rare, brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and teenagers and the biggest cause of potentially treatable blindness in children - 62% of children who survive a brain tumour will be left with a life-altering, long-term disability.

Early diagnosis of brain tumours can save lives - know the signs and symptoms.
