Ependymomas

About This Condition

These tumours come from the ependymal cells and because they do not spread into normal brain tissues, can sometimes be cured by surgery. The rarely spread outside of the brain but do have a high risk of local recurrence. Ependymomas make up less than 2% of all brain tumours in adults and less than 10% of all brain tumours in children.
