Great to hear the good effects of homeopathy on her. Please carry on with homeopathy. Only homeopathy can tackle allergy issue because it works upon the immunity of the person. I had great experience with such patients who are not allergic any more to various things after the prescription of homeopathic medicines.

Brain Tumors: Types, Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Neurosurgery
Neurosurgeon, Guwahati
Brain Tumors: Types, Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment

A tumor is an uncontrolled and abnormal growth of cells. A brain tumor is thus an abnormal growth and multiplication of cells in the brain. The cell growth can also be in areas adjacent to the brain. The brain tumor may

  1. Have its origin in the brain (Primary brain tumor), or
  2. Its origin may be in some other parts or organs of the body, which gradually spreads to the brain (Secondary/metastatic brain tumor).

Not all brain tumors are harmful and life threatening.

Brain tumors that exist as noncancerous cell growths are known as Benign brain tumors. Benign brain tumors seldom pose any threat to life.

Brain tumors that are cancerous and, thus, harmful, are known as Malignant brain tumors.

Do not neglect any brain tumors (malignant or not). It is better to be safe than to be sorry.

Types of Primary brain tumors:

Based on its cell of origin, primary brain tumors (benign as well as malignant) may be of the following types:

  1. Meningiomas: Brain tumors that originate from the meninges (the membranes that cover the brain and the spinal cord). Meningiomas are seldom malignant.
  2. Acoustic Neuromas: A noncancerous cell growth that has its origin in the vestibulocochlear nerve (the eighth cranial nerve). This nerve connects the brain with the inner ear.
  3. Gliomas: Here, the tumor has its origin in the brain and the spinal cord (glial cells). This type of brain tumors, in most cases (~80%), are malignant.
  4. Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors (PNETs): Extremely rare, PNETs are malignant tumors that develop in the embryonic cells in the brain.
  5. Medulloblastomas: Medulloblastomas is a malignant brain tumor that mostly affects children. It originates in the cerebellum (lower part of the brain).
  6. Craniopharyngiomas: A benign brain tumor that has its origin near the pituitary gland (base of the brain). Craniopharyngiomas are common in children.

Probability of a secondary brain tumor are more in people who have had;

  1. Kidney cancer
  2. Breast cancer
  3. Lung cancer
  4. Colon cancer
  5. Melanoma

Symptoms:

The symptoms of brain tumor include:

  1. Chronic and regular headaches.
  2. A change in the headache pattern.
  3. Seizures.
  4. A person may experience vision problems (Peripheral vision may be affected, double or blurred vision).
  5. There may be difficulty in hearing.
  6. Nausea and vomiting.
  7. Behavioral and speech problems.
  8. An arm or a leg may lose sensation.
  9. A person has difficulty with balance.

Diagnosis and Treatment:
Though brain tumor can affect anyone and everyone, its chances are higher in

  1. People who are more exposed to ionizing radiation. People having undergone a radiation therapy are equally vulnerable.
  2. Children as well as older people.
  3. People having a family history of brain tumors.

The diagnosis includes;

  1. An imaging test like the MRI, CT scan and PET (Positron Emission Tomography).
  2. Biopsy, whereby samples of the abnormal tissue is collected and examined.
  3. Neurological examination.

Treatment:

  1. Surgery is an effective treatment for brain tumors.

One can also opt for:

  1. Radiations, whereby the abnormal tumor cells are destroyed using protons and x-rays (high-energy beams).
  2. Chemotherapy: In this treatment, the tumor cells are destroyed using strong drugs (taken orally or intravenously).
  3. Radiosurgery.
  4. Targeted drug therapy: This treatment blocks the abnormalities that are characteristically present only in the cancer cells.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Does lack of oxygen at the time of early childhood result in fit in the long run? Is it curable in adulthood? My doctor says it is different from epilepsy. The patient is around 42. Please guide.

MD Pediatric
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Yes lack of oxygen supply to brain lead to brain cell damage which may manifest as seizure or epilepsy in long run. Brain cells damaged in childhood can not be repaired but manifestations can be controlled with drugs. Appropriate antiepileptic drugs should be given to patient to keep him seizure free. Antiepileptic drugs doesn't have a blanket rule for dosage. Each patient individually needs titration of drug dosage and doctor see what dose suits him. It requires patience. Target is to control seizures completely because each seizure episode itself decrease oxygen supply to brain and further damages brain.

Need to see neurosurgeon. In many such cases detailed evaluation is required when seizures are not controlled. Sometimes surgery is also helpful.

Concussion - 10 Signs that Indicate it!

Concussion - 10 Signs that Indicate it!

British head injury statistics report that about one million people are required to go through emergency care every year. Although many of these accidents are minor, one out of five victims is required to be admitted in the hospital for emergency care. Head injuries amount to about 1 percent of all deaths and about 15 to 20 percent death in people aged between 5 and 35 years. This is the most common form of death in abused children.

Symptoms of a concussion
Head injuries are also known as concussions or traumatic brain injuries, which may range from mild to severe. Most mild injuries cause no harm over time but in rare cases, these may trigger a host of problems. You must seek medical help in case you observe any of the following symptoms:

  1. Nausea, drowsiness and headache are persistent for a long time and get worse every day.
  2. Difficulty in waking up from sleep; this problem is very common with children.
  3. Unusual and incomprehensible behavior like getting annoyed or losing temper and being confused.
  4. Amnesia or forgetfulness.
  5. Change in the size of eye pupil especially dilated pupil.
  6. Difficulty in explaining anything, speaking and even walking.
  7. Drainage of blood-like or clear fluids from nose or ears.
  8. Weakness or numbness in different parts of the body, particularly in arms and legs.
  9. Seizures
  10. Vomiting more than twice or thrice in a day.

Such symptoms should never be overlooked and they may take place separately or in combination in people affected with mild head injuries. These symptoms are collectively called post concussional syndrome causing irritability, depression, fatigue, tiredness, insomnia together with the above mentioned problems.

Homeopathic treatment to alleviate the symptoms
Initial hours right after the head injury are very crucial. A proper treatment at this point of time can prevent further worsening of the condition. Arnica and NatrumSulph are very effective in treating head injuries or concussion. Though most people regard Arnica as a small remedy in petty injuries, in truth, Arnica plays a vital role in preventing immediate as well as remote effects culminating from a head injury. It can control internal hemorrhages or bleeding, which may lead to critical problems in the future.

Another important homeopathic medicine is NatrumSulph that is known for its ability to treat epilepsy, sightlessness, vertigo and memory loss, which can arise from an immediate or distant head injury. It can also lead to swelling in the optic channel through which the optic nerve goes that can cause acute visual disturbances. Therefore, it is important to consult a responsive healthcare provider without further delay.

I feel acidity everyday. I have to vomit everyday in morning after drinking a glass of water to bring out the acid in my stomach. I also suffer from some sort of constipation because I never feel done even after going to the washroom in morning. These problems also lead to migraine attacks.

Homeopathic philosophy does not favour the use of temporary painkillers or short cuts for the treatment of migraine or for that matter any disease. Homeopathy tries to go deep down into the cause of the problem and completely eradicate the tendency of a patient to have these migraine headaches now and then. That is why it takes some time for the medicines to show results. They do not have a short term or temporary effect like the allopathic painkillers. On the contrary, homeopathic medicines have long term effects and work to completely cure the migraine problem. After a couple of months of homeopathic treatment for migraine headaches, patients are pleasantly surprised to experience a completely pain free or headache free life. This is the beauty of Homeopathy.  The first line of treatment that almost everyone resorts to is that of taking laxatives. It is likely to be any of the most frequently advertised one bought over the counter. It may even be something recommended by an elder in the family. The biggest disadvantage of such laxatives is that they are habit forming. Once you start takingthem, you cannot leave them. Otherwise, you will not be able to evacuate your bowels in a satisfactory manner. Here, Homeopathy offers the biggest advantage. The homeopathic medicines do not work as laxatives. This means that you should not expect them to work as short term quick fixes. Rather, they work to improve the digestive system which has lost its proper and smooth functioning. The peristaltic movement of the intestines, which is responsible for pushing out the waste matter is often compromised in patients who are constipated. Homeopathy  intends to cure the root cause of constipation. It is therefore natural that these medicines are going to take some time to get things going. Ultimately, it is effective at restoring this peristaltic movement to the normal self You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects
