A meningioma is a brain tumour that develops in the layers of tissue that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. This is called the meninges. Meningiomas are usually benign and grow very slowly although some can be faster growing.
Symptoms may include:
• tiredness (vomiting)
• weakness in an arm or leg
• personality changes, being confused
• seizures (fits).
HOW IS MENINGIOMA DIAGNOSED?
Your general physician may conduct a brain scan, an MRI or a CT scan to diagnose the meningioma as well as to locate its exact place as well as determine its size. A biopsy may be required to check if the tumour is benign or malignant.
HOW IS MENINGIOMA TREATED?
Surgery and radiation are the most common forms of treatment for meningioma. Surgery is the primary treatment for meningiomas, although some tumors may not be removed this way. Radiation therapy may be used to tumors that cannot be removed with surgery, tumors that are not completely removed in surgery, malignant/anaplastic tumors, or recurrent tumors.
