Treatment of brain cancer


brain tumor is a mass of abnormal cells that multiply in the brain in an uncontrolled way.

There are 2 main types of brain tumors depending on whether they are cancerous or not:

  • Benign(non-cancerous) tumors . They form rather slowly and most often remain isolated from neighboring brain tissues. They do not spread to other parts of the brain or other organs and are generally easier to surgically extract than malignancies. However, some benign tumors remain unreliable due to their location.
  • Malignant tumors (cancerous). It is not always easy to distinguish them from neighboring tissues. As a result, it is sometimes difficult to extract them entirely without damaging the surrounding brain tissue.

SYMPTOMS

It is possible that a brain tumor causes no signs or symptoms in the early stages of the disease. Signs and symptoms may appear suddenly or appear gradually and worsen over time. Symptoms appear when the tumor:

  • develops in neighboring brain tissues and disrupts the normal functioning of this region
  • causes the brain to swell, increasing the pressure inside the skull (intracranial pressure)
  • repels parts of the brain to other areas of the same organ (hernia)
  • blocks the passage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)Liquid present in cavities in and around the brain and spinal cord that serves as protection and cushion.

Signs and symptoms of a brain tumor include:
