A meningioma is a tumor that forms on membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord just inside the skull. Often, meningiomas cause no symptoms and require no immediate treatment. But the growth of benign meningiomas can cause serious problems.
Dr. Joseffer explains:
Meningiomas are usually benign, slow growing tumors that originate from the covering of the brain. While they are considered to be brain tumors, meningiomas are generally located outside of the brain. This tumor is almost always non-cancerous and many of these can be managed with observation alone. Tumors that appear aggressive, are growing, or are causing significant symptoms may need surgery. Another option for smaller tumors is stereotactic radio surgery.
