Meningioma is a tumor that originates in the meninges – the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord just inside the skull.
Meningiomas are often slow-growing tumors. As many as 90% are benign (not cancerous). However, benign tumors like meningiomas can create problems when they begin to grow large enough to put pressure on the brain or spinal cord.
Meningiomas occur most commonly in women and are often discovered at older ages. Because meningiomas grow slowly, they may exist for years without any signs or symptoms and may not require immediate treatment upon discovery.
