Meningioma is the most common type of primary brain tumor in adults that develops in the meninges, one of the protective layers around the brain and spinal cord. The meninges consist of the dura mater, the arachnoid membrane, and the pia mater, which is right below the skin and skull. Because the meninges cover the entire brain and spinal column, slow-growing meningioma can develop almost anywhere. As it grows, it creates pressure against the brain nerves, tissue and blood vessels in the surrounding areas and cause symptoms. Meningioma occur more often in women more than in men.
