Brain Tumor - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

IFAANS, DNB (Neurosurgery), MBBS

Brain Tumor - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

There is no trustworthy evidence regarding what causes brain tumors, but there are a few risk factors that have been substantiated through research. Children and young people who receive radiation around the head are susceptible to developing tumors in the brain once they grow up. Also, people with a certain kind of rare genetic condition like neurofibromatosis may develop a brain tumor though such cases are very few in number. Age is also an important factor as people aged over 65 years are diagnosed with brain tumors at quadruple times higher than children and younger people.

Types of Brain Tumours:

A primary brain tumor originates in the brain, and they may or may not be cancerous. Some tumors can be benign, which do not spread in the surrounding tissues and are not very malicious. However, that does not signify that they will not cause any harm over time. Sometimes these tumors can be severe and cause a threat to the life of the sufferer. The National Cancer Institute reports that approximately there were 23, 380 fresh cases of brain tumors in 2014.

Identifying the Symptoms of Brain Tumors:

The symptoms of the brain tumor are dependent on various factors such as the size, type as well as the exact location of the tumor. These symptoms are triggered when any tumor is pressed or clashed against a nerve or disturbs a part of the brain. Symptoms are also felt when any tumor particle blocks the fluid flowing around the brain or when there is a swelling in the brain owing to the build-up of fluid.

Common symptoms include: headaches that get worse in the morning, nausea along with vomiting, an alteration in the speech, hearing and imbalances in walking and movement, mood swings, change in personality and ability to concentrate or remember things and seizures or convulsions.

Treatment for Brain Tumor:

Surgery is normally the most usual treatment for brain tumors, and the patient is given anesthesia, and the scalp is shaved before the surgery. Then, craniotomy is performed to open the skull, and the surgeon removes a bone piece out of the skull. Then the tumor is removed as much as possible. The bone is then restored back, and the incision on the scalp is closed. Sometimes surgery is not viable in case the tumor has developed in the brain stem or some other complex parts.

Neurosurgeons can surgically remove some tumors completely (called resection or complete removal). If the tumor is near sensitive areas of the brain, neurosurgeons will only be able to remove part of it (called partial removal). Even partial removals can relieve symptoms and facilitate or increase the effectiveness of other treatments.

The role of surgery in treating brain tumors:

Surgery can provide:

  • The complete removal of some brain tumors
  • A sample to enable doctors to diagnosis the tumor and recommend the most appropriate treatment
  • Better quality of life:
    • Reduced symptoms and improved ability to function (e.g., to think, speak or see better)
    • Less pressure within the skull from the tumor
    • A longer life

In case you or any of your near ones is affected with brain tumor, you should visit the doctor to know the possible treatments other than surgery and other important questions related to brain tumor.

Hello doctor, My mother is suffering from cerebellar ataxia. Is there any treatment is there for this disorder. Doctor says that it cannot be treated. Please help me.

No cures are possible for most patients who suffer debilitating movement disorders called cerebellar ataxias. But in a few of these disorders, patients can be effectively treated with regimens such as prescription drugs, high doses of vitamin E and gluten-free diets.

Arachnoiditis genrally causes symptoms of limbs. But arachnoiditis temporal lobe can not cause upper limb problem. Temporal lobe related to mainly ear /speech problems. Hence you need to consult good senior neurophysician. Or send detailed report on private question.

My daughter is 16 year old. She had been feeling headache and occasional bouts of drowsiness for quite some time. We consulted a neuro physician who diagnosed this as Migraine. Her mother also has migraine. However, my daughter has started to feel even more drowsiness and reeling of head after taking medicines prescribed by doctor. These medicines are sarotena, Practin and Sibelium. Please advise.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Some of the medications that your daughter is taking tend to have side effects of sedation. So it is advisable to either titrate doses according to her needs or use alternative formulas to suit her needs. Consult a headache specialist or your treating physician for the same. If you so wish you may consult me online for any further queries or assistance in further treatmnet. Take care.

Hello, I am 19 years male, I am suffering from epilepsy, and facing sever headaches and black outs. Doctor has told me not to drive and play video games. Advice me something instant as I am very fond of play station and gaming boxes.

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD
General Physician, Gurgaon
Lybrate-user you should understand that what your ailment is. As you are suffering from epilepsy so your doctor has rightly advised you not to drive because if in case you get a fit while driving then you can harm yourself. Regarding video games you should try to avert from that too as any flashing light can precipitate an attack. Try to keep yourself occupied with books or anything which does not put you at risk.

No, but behind extensive crying there must have been some serious stressful condition which can lead to high blood pressure as well as brain hemorrhage.

As you say" she is not responding" I assume that her fits are still not under control then, and she continues to have psychiatric problems. In that case she may need a change of present medications according to her complaints. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for the same. If you feel so, you may contact me online for any further queries or assistance in treatment thereof.
