Primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) can occur anywhere in the brain, although the most common place is in the back of the brain near the cerebellum where they are called medulloblastomas. The symptoms of a PNET tumor depend on the location in the brain, but usually the individual experiences increased intracranial pressure. These tumors are fast growing and often malignant, occasional spreading throughout the brain or spinal cord.
