Brain Tumour Committee

ivo.es Brain Tumour Committee

The Brain tumour committee is made up of a multidisciplinary team of professionals in: pathological anatomy, molecular biology, nursing, nuclear medicine, neurosurgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiodiagnosis, radiophysics, and radiological protection.

The treatment of a brain tumour will depend on its typology, extension, and evolution. Depending on each case, there are therapeutic options available for surgery, external or internal radiotherapy (brachytherapy), or systemic treatments (chemotherapy, hormone therapy, drugs against molecular targets, etc.), and/or combinations of these.

Brain Tumours

When abnormal cells form in the tissues of the brain or spinal cord in adults, a central nervous system tumour occurs.

Central Nervous System

There are many types of brain and spinal cord tumours. Tumours form due to the abnormal multiplication of cells, and can start in different parts of the brain or spinal cord. The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system (CNS).
