Neuro-oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of brain and spinal cord tumors, which are also known as central nervous system (CNS) tumors. These tumors can be either malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous) .

Neuro-oncologists work in collaboration with other specialists, including neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists, to provide comprehensive care to patients with CNS tumors. They use a variety of diagnostic techniques, including imaging studies such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as tissue biopsies, to determine the type and stage of the tumor.

Treatment options for CNS tumors may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these approaches. Neuro-oncologists work closely with other specialists to develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient, taking into account factors such as the location and size of the tumor, as well as the patient's age, overall health, and personal preferences.
