A brain tumor may indicate a benign tumor in the brain or some form of malignant brain cancer. It is obvious that brain cancer is a life-threatening disorder, but a benign brain tumor can also be life-threatening, as it may cause high ICP and brain compression. Any form of brain tumor requires immediate professional medical diagnosis and treatment.
