Brain metastasis

Specialty of Neurology

Brain metastasis is a type of cancer starting elsewhere in the body, and spreading to the brain. The tumour types that most often develop metastases in the brain are melanoma, lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma and cancer of the kidney. Other cancers either never spread the brain, or very rarely do. When brain metastasis occurs, the tumour in the brain causes inflammation and intracranial pressure.
