Meningeal carcinomatosis is a type of cancer that is spread into the leptomeninges within the brain, which are the inner two meningeal layers surrounding the brain. The most common types of cancer that spread to the leptomeninges via the CSF are breast cancer, melanoma and lung cancer. Here is the latest research on meningeal carcinomatosis.
Adrenocortical carcinoma (acc) is a rare malignancy of the adrenal cortex, associated with a generally dismal prognosis owing to its aggressive behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
Low grade gliomas in the brain form from oligodendrocytes and astrocytes and are the slowest-growing glioma in adults. Discover the latest research on these brain tumors here.
Brain Stem Neoplasms are cancers that are common in children and can occur in the mesencephalon, pons or medulla oblongata. Discover the latest research on Brain Stem Neoplasms here.
In CNS lymphoma, cancerous cells from lymph tissues or other parts of the body form tumors in the brain and/or spinal cord. Here is the latest research on this rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive type of brain tumor. It contains a population of tumor initiating stem cell-like cells known as cancer stem cells. Investigations are ongoing into these cancer stem cells found in these solid tumors which are highly resistance to treatment. Here is the latest research on cancer stem cells in glioblastoma.
Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.
Bronchogenic Carcinoma is a malignant lung cancer arising in the epithelium of the bronchus or bronchiole. Discover the latest research on Bronchogenic Carcinoma here.
Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.
Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the brain ventricles, which are structures that produce fluid for the spine and brain. Discover the latest research on Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms here.
Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma is a highly aggressive pediatric brainstem tumor with a peak incidence in middle childhood and a median survival of less than 1 year. Here is the latest research.
