There are many different types of brain tumors. Some are cancerous and others are not cancerous. Brain tumors are abnormal cell growths that grow together, cause pressure, and affect other areas of the brain.
Carcinogens in the environment have been shown to contribute to a person’s cancer risk. These carcinogens include industrial pollutants and environmental contaminants such as vinyl chloride or benzene. There are three main types of carcinogens: ionizing radiation (such as UV light), chemicals (such as tobacco smoke), and certain viruses. Carcinogens are physical, biological, or chemical.
