Find out the ten things you should know in this video, or learn more on our website: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/brain-tumours Subscribe now for more from Cancer Research UK Like us on Facebook: http://po.st/iGQebN Follow us on Twitter: http://po.st/WPULG5 Follow us on Instagram: http://po.st/JAqd1B Cancers that start in the brain are called primary brain tumours. Tumours can start in any part of the brain or related structures. Cancers that have spread to the brain from somewhere else in the body are called secondary brain tumours or brain metastases. Generally, brain tumours can be cancerous (malignant) or non cancerous (benign). Around half of all brain tumours, or tumours in another part of the central nervous system, are malignant. The other half are benign tumours, or tumours where the diagnosis is not known. When the diagnosis is not known it is usually because the tumour is in a part of the brain that is too difficult to take a sample (biopsy) from. Having a brain tumour is relatively rare. Brain tumours that are cancerous (malignant) are more common in males than females. Non cancerous brain tumours, and tumours where the diagnosis is unknown, are more common in females. Almost half (46%) of brain tumours in the UK each year are diagnosed in people aged 65 and over. This includes tumours in other parts of the central nervous system and tumours anywhere else inside the bones of the head.

After being diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor, Lynn Cameron was subjected to the usual assault of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. But to no avail, scans revealed no change, and doctors gave her between six and 18 months to live. In desperation, Lynn eliminated sugar and processed foods from her diet (which was the best thing she could have done). Started researching alternative treatments. Initially skeptical about the healing powers of cannabis oil but feeling that she had nothing to lose, Lynn decided to give it a shot. Her results were nothing short of miraculous.......

Brain tumor study raises cell phone concerns in England
Story highlightsThe incidence rate for glioblastoma more than doubled in England between 1995 and 2015, a study findsThe study questions whether cell phone use was a factor; experts warn that there is no evidenceCT scans also believed to be possible contributing factor, study says (CNN)The incidence rate of aggressive malignant brain tumors in England has more than doubled in recent decades, and a new study questions what could be driving that rise.The rate of glioblastoma climbed from 2.4 to 5.0 per 100,000 people in England between 1995 and 2015, according to the study, published Wednesday in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health.The data analyzed in the study only reflect trends in brain cancer cases and do not shed light on why these trends could have occurred, but the researchers pointed to examples of lifestyle factors that they think could have played a role. Among those factors, they briefly referenced previous studies on cell phone use possibly being associated with brain tumors and changes in the brain.JUST WATCHEDWhat is glioblastoma?ReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCHWhat is glioblastoma? 01:13"The paper itself is not about cell phones; it's just about this change in the tumors ... but cell phones seem like really they're the most likely cause," said Alasdair Philips, lead author of the study and a trustee of Children with Cancer UK. Read MoreThe tumors "primarily are in the frontal and temporal lobe areas, by your ear and forehead," which raises the cell phone suspicion, he said. Yet, he added, since brain tumors are very rare, his suspicion should not raise alarm, because even if cell phone use could raise your brain tumor risk, "it's still a very low risk of you individually getting a brain tumor," he said. "My advice would be if you're going to have a long call, make sure it's hands-free, but I wouldn't panic about it, either."Several experts in the UK have cautioned that although the study found evidence of an increase in brain tumors, the suggestion that cell phone use could be responsible is not proven. Cell phone radiation study finds more questions than answersAround the world, research into cell phone radiation and a potential link to cancer risks has left more questions than answers. Some studies have found no relationship between cell phone radio frequency and certain health problems, such as increased risks of tumors, while others suggest the opposite. "I am not convinced that the statistical analysis in this paper is sufficient to identify any cause of the increase in tumors. The authors do imply that other tumor types have decreased in incidence and there are a number of ways in which such findings can be explained," Malcolm Sperrin, director of the Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the UK, said in a written statement released by the independent Science Media Centre. He was not involved in the new research.There are three main reasons why p

http://braintumouruk.org.uk. In July 2004 my mum was diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer. Following surgery and chemotherapy she's had an amazing five years of life changing experiences. In June 2009 the cancer returned as tumours in her lungs and a large brain tumour. The tumour in her brain has been successfully removed and she received chemotherapy for the lung tumours. My mother is my true inspiration. One of the reasons shes so inspiring is that she raised £5,600 by trekking to Machu Picchu in Peru for Beating Bowel Cancer in May 2009. The trip was more amazing than she anticipated as unknown to us all she did it with brain and lung tumours and lung emboli (clots). So now it was my turn to do some fundraising! I did an amazing sky dive near Brackley, Oxford two days before my 21st birthday and raised £3500 for the charity Brain Tumour UK. the leading charity committed to fighting brain tumours by providing support, funding research and raising awareness in the UK. http://braintumouruk.org.uk Video produced by Mike Crowe http://www.webmovies4you.com Cambridge Video Production...Youtube Video
