Brain tumors are any type of abnormal growth of cells in the brain, which may or may not be cancerous, but can grow and put pressure on parts of the brain, causing personality, hearing, and hormonal changes, as well as seizures, balance difficulties, and headaches.

CT and MRI scans, as well as biopsies, will help your doctor diagnose such a tumor and determine how to treat it. Treatment usually includes surgery.

MedStar Health neurosurgeons perform the most advanced, patient-friendly, and microsurgical techniques, offering new hope to patients' inoperable brain tumors or brain tumors previously thought to be untreatable. We also offer CyberKnife® treatment, a noninvasive stereotactic radiosurgery option, for acoustic neuromas and skull base tumors.
