Brain and spine tumors demand expert care. With Temple's Brain & Spinal Tumor Program, you'll find the experience and expertise you need and want. Temple Neurosurgery, in collaboration with Fox Chase Cancer Center, can help diagnose and treat all types of brain and spinal cord tumors, malignancies and complications caused by cancer.
Brain and spinal cord tumors are rare — less than 1% of people in the U.S. will ever develop a primary cancerous tumor (a tumor that originates in) the brain or on the spine. Because cancerous (malignant) and noncancerous (benign) tumors can both affect almost every way your body functions, from thinking and moving to talking and breathing, hearing you have a brain or spinal tumor can feel overwhelming. It’s natural to have many questions about how your diagnosis and treatment will affect your life. We’re here with answers, support and compassion every step of the way.
