Meningiomas are one of the most common types of brain tumors. They grow on the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord (called meninges) and are usually benign and relatively slow growing, though more aggressive forms also exist. As meningiomas grow, they can put pressure on the brain and important surrounding structures, causing neurological problems. Our team of Duke experts work together to provide the most advanced treatments available to remove the tumor and relieve any neurological symptoms you may be experiencing.
