What is Brain Tumor?

A brain tumor is a group of abnormal cells that grow in or around the brain. Tumors can directly destroy healthy brain cells. They can also indirectly damage healthy cells by infiltrating other parts of the brain and cause inflammation, encephalitis and pressure inside the skull. Brain tumors are malignant or benign. The cancer is also called brain cancer. It grows rapidly and often attacks healthy parts of the brain. Benign brain tumors do not have cancer cells and grow normally slowly. Brain tumors are primary or metastatic. Primary brain tumors begin in the brain. Metastatic tumors form when cancer cells separate in other parts of the body and travel to the brain. For this reason, metastatic brain tumors are almost always malignant, while primary brain tumors may be benign or malignant.

How to Diagnose Brain Tumor?

The diagnosis of a brain tumor begins with a physical examination and a look at your medical history. Physical examination includes a very detailed neurological examination. Dr. Prasad Umbarkar performs a test to see if you are missing cranial nerves. These are the nerves that come out of your brain.

The doctor may also evaluate your:

  • muscle strength
  • coordination
  • memory
  • ability to do mathematical calculations

Your doctor may order more tests after they finish the physical exam. These could include:

  • CT scans are ways your doctor can get a more detailed scan of your body than an X-ray machine. It can be with or without difference.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides images of the brain using a strong magnet connected to a computer. MRI is especially useful in diagnosing brain tumors because it “scans” the skeletal bones down to the tissue beneath them.
  • Angiogram or arteriogram:These tests are a series of X-rays taken after injecting a special dye into a vein, usually in the area where the abdomen attaches to the upper leg. Brain scan Brain scan reveals parts of the abnormal brain growth and records them on a special film. A small amount of radioactive material is injected into a vein.

Treatment of Brain Tumors:

The treatment of a brain tumor depends on:

  • the type of tumor
  • the size of the tumor
  • the location of the tumor
  • your general health

The most common treatment for brain cancer is surgery. The goal is to eliminate as many cancers as possible without damaging healthy parts of the brain. While the location of some tumors allows for safe removal, other tumors may lie in an area that limits how much of the tumor can be removed. Even partial removal of brain cancer can be beneficial.

What are the risk factors for developing Brain Tumor?

In most people with primary brain tumors, the cause of the tumor is unclear. But doctors know several factors that can increase your risk of brain tumors.

  • Family History: Only about 5 to 10 percent of trusted sources of all cancers are genetically or inherited. It is rare for a brain tumor to be genetically inherited.
  • Age: The risk for most types of brain tumors increases with age.
  • Chemical exposure: Exposure to certain chemicals, such as those found in the work environment, may increase your risk of brain cancer.
  • Radiation exposure: People exposed to ionizing radiation have an increased risk of brain tumors. You may be exposed to ionizing radiation through high radiation cancer therapies.
