“..When you’re told that you have a brain tumor, it’s natural to wonder what may have caused your disease. But no one knows the exact causes of brain tumors. Researchers are studying whether people with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop a brain tumor..”

“…The Types of Adult Brain Tumors
Brain tumors are described by their location, tissue type, and the cells that make up the mass.
The following types of brain tumors are commonly found in adults:
Gliomas come in different types. They range from non-cancerous to mixed cells. Glioblastomas are the most aggressive form of glioma.
Meningiomas are more common in adults in the 40-70 age group. They are typically non-cancerous. Meningiomas occur more commonly in women.
Schwannomas also occur in adults aged 40-70. They affect both men and women.

Other possible risk factors
Research has looked at other factors that may increase brain tumour risk, including
Several studies have looked at whether living near power lines increases the risk of brain tumours but they have not found an increased risk.
Researchers are investigating mobile phones to see how much low level (non ionising) radiation they produce. From the evidence so far we still can’t say that mobile phones pose a problem to health. There has been a concern about them causing brain tumours in particular. But there is no strong evidence that there is any link.
According to the latest research, using hair dye is unlikely to increase your risk of developing a brain tumour.
Smoking and alcohol
It’s not yet clear whether smoking affects brain tumour risk. But some studies have shown increased risks for some types of brain tumour. Drinking alcohol doesn’t seem to affect risk..”

Brain tumor treatment stopcancerfund.org
“….Different types of treatment are available for patients with adult brain tumors. Some treatments are standard (the currently used treatment), and some are being tested in clinical trials. The purpose of clinical trials are to see if the treatment being tested is better, worse, or equally safe and effective compared to other treatments.* Some clinical trials are open only to patients who have not started treatment.
Three types of standard treatment are used:..”
Can dietary antioxidants reduce the incidence of brain tumors? Curr Drug Metab. 2011 Jul;12(6):587-93. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
“…Also, an inverse relationship between antioxidant levels and grades of malignancy has been found after histopathological examination of brain tumors. Moreover, high intake of vitamin E is correlated with greater survival for all patients diagnosed as Grade III malignant glioma. Dietary supplementation with antioxidants [e.g. vitamins C & E] was found to reduce the incidence of brain tumors in children whose mothers took these vitamins throughout pregnancy. On the other hand, decreases in antioxidant levels were correlated with the severity of malignancy of brain tumors, and also with accumulation of considerable amounts of oxidative stress products including free radicals which damage this tissue. The mechanisms of protection of these antioxidants against brain tumors might be due to inhibition of the nitrosation process, decreasing of tumor necrotic factor, scavenging of free radicals, inhibition of telomerase activity which facilitates telomere attrition. It is concluded that administration of antioxidants could reduce the incidence of brain tumors and probably other types of cancer…
