There are many different types of brain tumors. Brain tumors could be benign or malignant. Most common type of brain tumor are the secondary type tumors whereby the primary tumor is elsewhere in the body. Based on the cell type from which the tumor arises the brain tumors are once again classified into diferrent types.  While some types of brain tumor can be treated successfully, the secondary types of tumor have a poor prognosis.

Brain tumors are commonly located in the posterior cranial fossa in children and in the anterior two-thirds of the cerebral hemispheres in adults, although they can affect any part of the brain. In children under 2, about 70% of brain tumors are medulloblastoma, ependymoma, and low-grade glioma. Less commonly, and seen usually in infants, are teratoma and atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor. Germ cell tumors, including teratoma, make up just 3% of pediatric primary brain tumors, but the worldwide incidence varies significantly.
