Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread. Other names: Malignant tumor, malignant neoplasm. DIPG tumours are a type of cancer in which there are mutations in the so-called histone proteins. One of these is the H3K27M protein that could be the cause of the malignant brain tumour. In .
