Meningiomas

Meningiomas are tumors that arise from the membranes that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Most meningiomas are located outside the brain, but they are also found outside the spinal cord. Most are benign, or NOT a cancer, even though more than one tumor may be present. Meningiomas can occur at any age and in both genders, but are most common in older women.

Many meningiomas cause no symptoms. When they do, people may complain of worsening headaches, memory problems, seizures, weak limbs, double vision, or blurry vision. This type of tumor is usually diagnosed by CT scan or MRI. Some patients need no treatment other than observation but others require surgery or specialized radiation treatments to remove or arrest growth in the meningioma.
