Adopt Effective Treatment Method to Diagnose Brain Tumor
A brain tumor is a specific condition in which people witness the abnormal growth of cells within the brain. This disease can also be defined as intracranial tumor created by abnormal and uncontrolled cell division in the brain itself. Such tumors can directly or indirectly damage healthy cells by crowding other parts of the brain and can cause inflammation, pressure within the skull and brain swelling.
There are certain types of brain tumors such as glioblastoma multiforme, CNS lymphoma, mixed gliomas, brain metastasis, astrocytoma, and other. Basically brain tumors are of two types as malignant and benign tumor. Malignant tumor grows rapidly and infects other healthy cells of the brain. On the other hand benign tumors do not contain cancer cells and grow with slow pace. They can occur at any age. The primary brain tumors initially form in the brain tissue, while the secondary (metastatic) tumors are such cancers that have spread to the brain tissue brought from other parts of body. So that metastatic brain tumors are of malignant nature and primary brain tumor may be malignant or benign.
Patients suffering from brain tumor show certain types of symptoms like headache, nausea, behavior change, vomiting, seizures, memory loss and other vision and hearing problems. They largely depend on the size and their location in the brain. The real cause of primary brain tumors is still unknown; they may be due to environmental and genetic factors. Earlier there were some invasive and sometimes dangerous methods for the treatment of brain tumors such as pneumoencephalography and cerebral angiography. At the time there are some advanced treatment methods that use non-invasive and high-resolution modalities like computed tomography (CT) and especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In this way brain tumor can be diagnosed by surgery, targeted biological agents, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a sophisticated combination of all these methods.
