Brain Tumour Surgery

Brain Tumour is a term used for an abnormal mass of cells that develops in the brain due to uncontrolled division of the Brain cells. This is caused by certain abnormalities in the DNA, the genetic material that regulates cell reproduction and growth. The unhealthy cells, so produced, bind together, resulting in the formation of a benign or malignant mass known as a Tumor.

Brain Tumours account for more than 85 percent of all Tumours that originate in the central nervous system. There are over 150 types of brain Tumors that can develop in any part of the brain and trigger varied symptoms. If diagnosed early, these can be effectively managed with the right treatment and care. 

What are the different types of Brain Tumours?
Brain Tumours are broadly classified into two types - Benign Brain Tumours and Malignant Brain Tumours 

  • Benign Brain Tumours - Despite being non-cancerous in nature, these can prove to be dangerous and even life-threatening. In rare cases, the Tumour can become cancerous with time. Some common types of Benign Brain Tumours include Meningioma, Pituitary Adenoma, Craniopharyngioma, Schwannoma and Choroid Plexus Tumour 
  • Malignant Brain Tumour - Being cancerous in nature, these are highly aggressive in nature and can spread to other parts of the brain and even the spinal cord, giving rise to life-threatening complications. Some common types of malignant brain tumours include: medulloblastomas, gliomas, acoustic neuromas and germ cell Tumours 

What are the indications of a Brain Tumour?
Various indications, that point towards the possibility of one having a brain Tumour include:

  • New and frequent onsets of headaches 
  • Headaches that worsen with time
  • Getting exhausted very easily 
  • Having seizures or fits 
  • Nausea, Fatigue, and Drowsiness 
  • Unexplained change in behavior
  • Having problems with vision, hearing, and speech
  • Weakness or loss of sensation in the limbs
  • Experiencing problems related to movement, coordination, balance, and posture 

When is the right time to see a doctor? 
You should see a doctor as soon as you start experiencing any of the above-mentioned symptoms. These do not necessarily mean that you have a Brain Tumour and any conclusion can be reached only after thorough evaluation and assessment.
