Brain tumors are divided into 4 stages starting from Stage I to Stage IV. In the Stage I, the cancer starts growing slowly and then Stage IV is the advanced stage in which the cancer spreads to other parts of the body.

The brain tumors are divided into 4 stages:

Stage I: At this stage, the brain tumors grow very slowly. The appearance of brain tumors is very similar to that of the healthy cells. The cells are non-cancerous.

Stage II: At this stage, the brain tumors are cancerous and cell growth takes place at this stage. The change in the cells is visible when seen under a microscope. These tumors may spread to the nearby areas as well.

Stage III: The brain cells at this stage are cancerous and they spread to the other parts of the body. These cells grow at a faster rate than that of the cells in the earlier 2 stages.

Stage IV: At this stage, the cancer spreads to different parts of the cancer at a fast speed. The presence of necrosis is evident in this stage of brain tumor.
