Central Neurocytoma

A central neurocytoma is a rare brain tumour typically found in the ventricles, the fluid-filled spaces within the brain. This tumour is generally considered benign, growing slowly and less likely to spread to other parts of the brain or body. However, its location can lead to symptoms by obstructing cerebrospinal fluid flow, causing increased brain pressure. Symptoms might include headaches, changes in vision, or difficulty with balance. Treatment often involves surgical removal of the tumour to relieve these symptoms and prevent further complications. Despite its rarity and potential for symptoms, the prognosis for individuals with a central neurocytoma is generally favourable, especially with timely diagnosis and treatment.
