Health in Focus: Benign Brain Tumors

By Admin | January 02, 2019

A brain tumor isn’t always cancer, and it’s not always a devastating diagnosis.

Dr. Jay Jagannathan, with Jagannathan Neurosurgery, explains how benign brain tumors affect the body.

“So when we think of tumor, we normally think of cancer,” Jagannathan says. “Which means it is a disease that can spread from one part of the body to the other and it is in these that the cells can divide quickly and can often grow extremely large very quickly.”

But a noncancerous brain tumor is an unexpected cluster of abnormal cells called a benign tumor.
