Question about MeningiomasWhat are meningiomas?
Meningiomas are benign tumours of the meninges, the lining of the brain and spine. They are not uncommon chance findings on brain scans; sometimes cause epilepsy or paralysis. Some meningiomas need surgery to remove them others can be left alone or monitored with serial MRI scans. Memingiomas can be hormonally sensitive, are commoner in women than men, and in postmenopausal women often do not change in size over many years.
