What is a brain tumor?

Tumor is a mass of tissue that develops abnormally when cells grow and divide more frequently than is normal.

The brain tumor is a collection of such abnormal cells in the brain.

The additional cell growth in our brain increases the pressure inside the restricted skull’s cavity, which causes brain damage, and can be life-threatening.

Brain tumors can be either:

  • Benign tumors : they are not cancerous and cannot spread to other parts of the brain or body like Meningioma or Pituitary Adenoma.
  • Malignant tumors : they are cancerous, they grow very fast and can regrow even after complete excision or radiotherapy.

These tumors have a very poor prognosis.

Whom you should consult for the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumor?

A Neurosurgeon is the doctor who is most suitable to diagnose any brain related problems.

MRI scan of the brain is the most important investigation for the diagnosis of brain tumor.

MRI scan of the brain

  • MRI scan of the brainNeurological examination: This includes checking your balance, vision, hearing, coordination, reflexes, and strength.
  • Imaging tests: Imaging tests that are used to diagnose brain tumors are: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computerized Tomography (CT) scan, and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan.
  • Analysis of CSF: Cerebrospinal fluid is tested to diagnose the brain tumor conditions.
  • Angiography: In this procedure, the fluorescent dye is made to travel to the brain to see details about the blood supply to the tumor which is helpful during surgical removal of the tumor.
  • Biopsy: A small piece of the tumor is examined to determine whether it is benign or malignant.

What is the treatment of Brain tumor?

Treatment of brain tumor with medicines

Few brain tumors which are not amenable for operation, which are deep seated, those tumors which are very risky to remove are treated by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Can brain tumor be cured with medicine?

No, medicines do not work in brain tumor. Some steroids can give relief momentarily by reducing tissue edema.

After surgery Chemotherapy is given to kill residual cells.

Brain Tumor treatment without surgery in India?

Only some tumor which are deep seated may be treated with radiosurgery. Most tumors require surgery to decrease the tumor mass so that chemotherapy and radiotherapy can work.

Can tumors on the brain be removed?

Yes, most of brain tumors are removed and excised by surgery. Some small and deep seated tumors are treated by radiosurgery or stereotactic biopsy.

Brain tumor surgery

  • Surgery : It is the most common treatment option for the brain tumors. The neurosurgeon attempts to eliminate as much cancerous cells as they can without harming the normal brain tissues.
  • Minimally invasive surgery : Neurosurgeon use this technique to remove the cancerous cells because it shortens your stay in the hospital, speeds up your recovery, and lowers the mortality rate.
  • Radiosurgery : Some small and deep seated tumors may require this modality of treatment. In this treatment procedure, many beams of radiation are focused onto the brain tumor to kill the tumor cells.
  • Radiation therapy : In this technique, X-rays or proton beams are used to kill tumor cells.
  • Chemotherapy : To kill the tumor cells, drugs are injected or taken orally.
