Brain Tumor News

Brain tumors are abnormal growths of cells in the brain or central spinal canal. They can be classified as either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), with the latter having the potential to grow aggressively and invade surrounding tissue. Brain tumors can originate in the brain (primary tumors) or spread from other parts of the body (metastatic or secondary tumors). Symptoms of brain tumors vary depending on the tumor’s size, type, and location, but may include headaches, seizures, vision or hearing problems, behavioral changes, and cognitive impairments. Treatment options depend on the tumor’s characteristics and may involve surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these. Advances in medical imaging and neurosurgical techniques have improved the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors, enhancing outcomes and quality of life for many patients. Nonetheless, the treatment of brain tumors poses significant challenges due to the critical and sensitive nature of the brain tissue involved.
