I also discovered that some brain tumors begin as lesions on the brain and the pressure that is sustained from the lesion being present and the tight enclosed space can cause a tumor to form... a very dangerous tumor at that.

In addition, we found an association between TBI severity and malignant brain tumor among patients with TBI (p=0.033). Our findings suggest a positive correlation between TBI and the relatively short-term development of malignant neoplasms of the brain...
