Brain cancers involve uncontrolled cell growth that forms tumors in blood vessels, cranial nerves, lymphatic tissue and other parts of the brain. They also hide behind the blood-brain barrier--a protective network of blood vessels and cells that filters foreign substances--including anticancer drugs--from easily flowing to the brain.
