Brain Tumour

The human brain is the hub of the nervous system. The function of the brain is to supervise and control the actions and reactions of the body. It controls the bodily functions as it obtains sensory information rapidly analyzes such data.

What is Brain Tumour?

Abnormal growth of cells within the brain or the central spinal canal is called brain tumor. Brain tumors can initiate anywhere from the brain cells, the membranes around the brain (known as meninges), nerves, or glands. Tumor causes inflammation, consequently placing pressure within the skull and compressing the brain tissues. Because of its insidious and infiltrative character in the intracranial cavity all such tumours are intrinsically serious and life-threatening.

Factors used to classify Brain tumors include the sites of the tumour, the type of tissues involved. They can either be cancerous or non-cancerous. Different types of brain tumors include:
  • Gliomas
  • Meningiomas
  • Ependymomas
  • Craniopharyngiomas
  • Pituitary tumors
  • Pineal gland tumors
  • Lymphoma of the brain
  • Prime germ cell tumors of the brain

Causes of Brain Tumour.

Brain tumours develop due to many possible risk factors like:
  • Radiation Exposure.
  • The risk of brain tumors is augmented by hereditary conditions, including neurofibromatosis, Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, and Turcot syndrome.

  • Plain Headaches or headaches accompanied by nausea, perplexity, double vision, weakness or lack of sensation.
  • Convulsions in older adults
  • Difficulty in ADLs like walking, swallowing, smelling, speaking, reading or writing.

Following tests confirm the presence and location of Brain tumours:
  • EEG (Electroencephalography )
  • MRI of the head
  • CT scan of the head
  • CT-guided biopsy (may confirm the exact type of tumor)
  • Assessment of the cerebral spinal fluid.

Brain Tumour Treatment

The size and type of tumour along with the health status of the patient determine the treatment of brain tumours. Surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy are the modes of treatment of brain tumour.

Most primary brain tumors require surgery. Few tumors can be completely removed except some. Tumors that are deep inside the brain or have entered brain tissues are debulked. Debulking is the process in which the size of the tumour is reduced. Along with surgery or radiotherapy chemotherapy is sometimes used.
