The brain tumor treatment is dependent on various factors which include the symptoms of brain tumor, location, size, and type of the tumor as well as the age and general health of the patient. Brain tumor surgery is the most comprehensive and elaborate treatment process besides chemotherapy and radiation. Your neurologist will evaluate all the factors before implementing a treatment plan. Surgery is the most common treatment option in which the neurosurgeon would make an incision to open and access the tumor. This treatment is called craniotomy in which the removal of the tumor could be either partial or complete, depending on the ability to remove the tumor without harming the adjacent brain tissues. Partial removal of the tumor helps in reduction of pressure on the brain and the remaining portion of the brain tumor can be reduced by either chemotherapy or radiation. There are some tumors which cannot be removed and in such cases, your neurologist may only do a biopsy to evaluate the type and condition of the tumor cells. The radiation therapy is also called radiotherapy where high-powered rays can be used for damaging the tumor cells and prevent them from growing. This treatment is used for destroying the tissue of tumor which is not possible to be removed through surgery. This radiation is also beneficial for damaging the brain tumors which have spread to the spinal cord region. There is no particular duration for the brain tumor treatment and it may continue for a few months to several years together.
