Brain Cancer

A cranial tumor, or brain tumor, is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain or spine that can disrupt proper brain function. Tumors can either be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign).

Treatment for Brain Cancer

At Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, our neurologists and neurosurgeons work in collaboration with oncologists at the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center to combine different types of treatment.

With full collaboration between our Cancer Center and neuroscience, pathology, radiology, nursing and social work programs, we provide individualized treatment plans for patients that are aimed to provide the best possible outcomes and quality of life. Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.


Symptoms may include new or increasingly strong pattern of headaches, unexplained nausea or vomiting, blurred vision, loss of balance, confusion, speech difficulties, hearing problems and seizures. In some cases, there may be no symptoms.
