Tumor: this five-letter word evokes fear, shock and confusion. And, a brain tumor diagnosis might sound like a death sentence. However, there are over 120 types of brain and central nervous system tumors. Some brain tumors are cancerous (malignant), while others are not (non-malignant). Either way, tumors in the brain or central nervous system (CNS) are different for everyone as they form in different areas, develop from different cell types, and may have different treatment options. While it is normal to feel scared, insecure, or angry about a brain tumor, you can empower yourself to by gathering information and talking to a physician. While tumor may be a five-letter word, science, math and computers are the dynamic trio to knock out tumors!
