Brain tumours, abnormal cell growth in the brain, affect about 28,000 Indians yearly, with over 24,000 deaths. Only around 27.9% are malignant. Risk factors include genetics, age (more common in the fifth and sixth decades), and gender (males for malignant, females for benign). Symptoms vary based on size and location, including headaches, seizures, weakness, and speech problems.
