Basically Meningioma is a kind of tumour that covers the membrane, which covers your brain and spinal cord. This is a slow growing kind of tumour that happens inside the skull and is usually benign and thus not cancerous. People suffering from the same would experience phases of headaches, dizziness, feeling lightheaded or heavy headed, blurring, numbness or also speech issues.
HOW IS MENINGIOMA DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis is made by a contrast enhanced CT (computerized tomography) and/or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan. While MRIs are in some ways superior, the CT can be helpful in determining if the tumor invades the bone, or if it’s becoming hard like bone. A biopsy may sometimes be performed. A surgeon removes part or all of the tumor to determine whether it is benign or malignant.
HOW IS MENINGIOMA TREATED?
Observation is recommended when the tumour is not causing any symptoms. Surgery may be necessary if the tumour is spreading.
DID YOU KNOW?
Often complications arise in the surgical procedure because the tumour is not really accessible and thus difficult to take out.
