In cancer, cells grow and divide without normal controls, causing abnormal growths called tumors. Tumors that start in the brain can be particularly dangerous, invading brain tissue and sometimes causing disability and death. In order to help readers understand this fearsome disease, the book first explores the normal structure and function of the brain and explains the kinds of tumors that can form in the central nervous system. The author discusses how brain tumors are detected, diagnosed, and treated, describing basic and cutting-edge therapies that are currently being used and developed. The final chapter covers the steps involved in rehabilitation and recovery, and provides support and guidance for those recovering from brain tumors.
