Any surgery involving the brain is very difficult, complicated and elaborate and when it comes to brain tumor surgery, a neurologist has to measure every step as even the minutest fault can lead to devastating results. In general, the risks associated with brain tumor treatment include instability of blood pressure, blood clots, pneumonia, bleeding, and infection. Plus, there are also some more specific risks on the basis of the individual health condition of the patient. But before performing any surgery, your neurologist would assess several factors such as symptoms of brain tumor, type, grade and size of the tumor, whether the tumor is benign or whether it is exerting pressure on any part of the brain, whether the tumor has become large enough to spread to other parts of the central nervous system or other regions of the body, side effects of the surgery, your preferences and condition of general health. Also, there are some tumors which grow and spread at a rapid pace while others take the time to spread. Your neurologist would evaluate all the factors in order to find out the most suitable treatment option and how soon can it be started. If you have a low-grade tumor in the brain, surgery is recommended for complete removal of the tumors and if there are visible tumors present after the surgery, it can be controlled with chemotherapy and radiation. But in the case of high-grade tumors, surgery is considered the only resort.
