Brain Tumor

Application Details :

Brain tumors are abnormal cell growths within the brain. They can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and they can grow from various types of brain cells or cells that have spread from elsewhere in the body. Brain tumor symptoms can vary greatly depending on their size, location, and rate of growth. Seizures, impaired vision, difficulty with balance or walking, changes in personality or behavior, memory issues, nausea, and vomiting are some of the more common symptoms. However, these symptoms can also be caused by other illnesses, therefore an accurate diagnosis requires a thorough medical examination. Brain tumors do not usually have apparent causes. Some risk factors, such as radiation exposure, certain genetic disorders, and a family history of brain tumors, have been discovered, but the actual reason in many cases remains unknown. A brain tumor is often diagnosed using a combination of imaging tests such as MRI or CT scans, neurological evaluations, and, in some cases, a biopsy to study a sample of the abnormal tissue. Treatment options are determined on the tumor's type, size, and location, as well as the patient's overall health. Surgery to remove as much of the tumor as feasible, followed by radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or targeted medication therapy to kill residual cancer cells or halt tumor development, may be used in treatment. In some circumstances, a wait-and-see approach may be advised, particularly for slow-growing tumors that do not cause severe symptoms. Living with a brain tumor can be physically and emotionally taxing. Patients may endure fatigue, hair loss, cognitive impairments, and emotional disturbances as a result of their therapies. Support from healthcare experts, caregivers, and support groups can help patients manage these issues and improve their quality of life. Regular follow-up care is required to monitor tumor growth or recurrence and to manage any side effects or complications that may arise. Medical research advances continue to enhance treatment options and results for people with brain tumors, providing hope for better management and possibly solutions in the future.
