The tumour that forms on the membrane that covers the brain and spinal cord is known as a meningioma. The signs and symptoms exhibited by these meningioma are headaches, hearing and memory loss, seizures, double or blurry vision and weakness in arms and legs.
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?
Treatment of Meningioma depends on the size of tumour and intensity of symptoms. For growing Meningiomas, surgical treatment is often sought after. Radiation therapy is performed by Oncologists in case the meningioma was not removed completely. Other treatment methods are radiosurgery, fractionated radiation and medication.
