Brain Tumour Grading Snippet

This is an interesting snippet from about grading brain tumours.

Brain tumours cannot truly be differentiated into benign or malignant. ‘Benign’ tumours account for significant morbidity and mortality, as they can continue to grow and cause adverse effects of any space-occupying lesion. Therefore, the preferred terms are ‘high-grade tumour’ (a tumour that grows rapidly and is aggressive) and ‘low-grade tumour’ (a tumour that grows slowly, but which may or may not be successfully treated).[1]
