Some tumor occurrence are depend on the area that cells arise such as oligodendrogliomas, ependymomas and astrocytomas occur mostly from the meninges, which is outer part of brain and spinal cord. Even though they arise outside of the brain meningiomas do not be considered as brain tumor, because 85% of meningiomas are benign and can cure by surgery.
