A meningioma is a typically benign tumour that arises from the meninges, the protective membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord.


Symptoms of meningioma can vary depending on the size and location of the tumor, but commonly include headaches, seizures, changes in vision, weakness or numbness in limbs, cognitive changes, and personality or behavioural changes.

Most Common Types

Meningiomas are primarily categorised based on their histological appearance, and common types include meningothelial (syncytial), fibrous, transitional (mixed), psammomatous, angiomatous, microcystic, secretory, lymphoplasmacyte-rich, metaplastic, chordoid, clear cell, atypical, and anaplastic meningiomas.

Treatment for Meningioma

Treatment for meningiomas depends on several factors including the size, location, and aggressiveness of the tumor, as well as the individual's overall health and preferences. Common treatment options include observation with regular monitoring, surgical removal (craniotomy), radiation therapy (including stereotactic radiosurgery like gamma knife), and in some cases, chemotherapy or targeted drug therapy. The choice of treatment is usually made by a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals specializing in neurosurgery, oncology, and radiation therapy, based on the specific characteristics of the tumor and the patient's condition.
