Medical terms depend on where the tumor originated (primary vs. secondary), whether it is confined to one area or spread to other areas (localized vs. invasive) and whether it is benign or malignant. Over 120 different types of brain tumors include gliomas (grow from glial cells), lymphomas (lymphatic cells), meningiomas (meninges), astrocytomas (astrocytes), etc.

Glioblastoma multiforme is one of brain neoplasms that can develop in the frontal lobe.
