Meningioma Facts

Meningioma Tumours are fairly rare and account for 30% of diagnosed tumours in the UK each year.
90% of meningiomas are benign, 6% are atypical, and 2% are malignant.
The word benign is misleading in this case as, when benign tumours grow and constrict the brain, they can cause disability and even be life threatening.
