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.

Caused by genetic mutation of the brain cells or low-grade glial tumor, brain cancer is not a condition that can always be prevented effectively but having thorough knowledge about the triggering factors, symptoms, and precautions can definitely impact your chances of developing it. Timely screening, eating healthy food and staying away from carcinogens can help in preventing brain cancer.
Biopsy is mainly associated with cancer and it helps doctors to detect abnormalities or any kind of diseases present in a human body. When a biopsy is done, a piece of tissue or a sample of cells is removed from body so that it can be analyzed in a laboratory. Based on the type of cancer there are various kinds of biopsies including Skin Biopsy, Bone Marrow Biopsy, Surgical Biopsy, Needle Biopsy and Endoscopic Biopsy.
