Brain Tumor Surgery

Brain Tumor Surgery Cost in India


Abnormal collection of rapidly dividing cells in the brain is known as a brain tumor. A primary brain tumor is found mainly in children, whereas secondary brain tumors are commonly found in adults. Patients exposed to ionizing radiation and have a genetic history of cancers are at high risk of developing brain tumors.
 

A brain tumor is defined as the abnormal growth of cells in your brain.

  • Many brain tumors are non-cancerous, also known as benign while some are cancerously known as (malignant). Brain tumors can begin in your brain (primary brain tumors), or malignancy can start in other organs of the body and then spread to your brain are known as metastatic tumors.
  • Brains tumors are named after the cells from which it is originating.
  • There are many types of brain tumors such as Choroid plexus carcinoma, Glioblastoma, Craniopharyngioma, Meningioma, Acoustic neuroma, Pituitary tumors.

Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of a brain tumor vary hugely  and it depends upon the tumor's location, its involvement to surrounding structures, it’s size and rate of growth

  • change in the pattern of headaches or newly diagnosed headaches onset.
  • More frequent and severe headaches.
  • Nausea or vomiting without having any other diagnosis.
  • Problems in the visual system, such as blurred vision, double vision or loss of peripheral vision.
  • A gradual loss of sensation or movement in an arm or a leg.
  • Difficulty with balance.
  • Speech difficulties.
  • Confusion in everyday chores.
  • Changes in personality traits or behavior changes.
  • Seizures, especially in patients without any history of previous seizures.
  • Hearing problems.
     

Etiology (reasons for developing tumor)

  • Primary brain tumors begin when normal cells attain errors in their DNA also known as mutations. These mutations signal cells to grow and multiply at increased rates and signal them to increase cell’s life span surpassing the normal life span of healthy cells Thus this abnormality results in a mass of abnormal cells, which forms a tumor.
  • Primary brain tumors are of much less occurrence in adults.
  • Patients with a history of cancer are more at risk of developing secondary brain tumors. In rare instances, a metastatic brain tumor may be the first sign of carcinoma that has actually begun in some other organ.
  • secondary brain tumors are more common than are primary brain tumors in adults.

The common type of cancer that metastasize to the brain are Colon carcinoma, melanoma, kidney cancer, breast carcinoma, lung carcinoma.

 

Risk factors

Risk factors associated with primary tumors are still an enigma, but generally, a few  risk factors have been found an association with brain tumors:

  1. High radiation exposure ( mostly via ionizing radiations )
  2. Hereditary/genetic association
  3. Syndromes

Frequently Asked Questions about Brain Tumor

Q. What percentage of brain tumors is cancerous?

When I describe the type of tumors that we see in the brain to patients, I try to give a feeling for two major aspects: First of all, some tumors can be "benign" in terms of their growth potential but behave very "malignantly" because of their location making them difficult to treat. The other aspect is how fast will these tumors grow despite our best treatments. Brain tumors, in general, do not tend to spread throughout the body but are a problem due to their continued growth inside the brain. If you think of the potential for re-growth, approximately 50 to 70 percent of all inter-cranial tumors will require additional treatment other than surgery alone.
 

Q. What are the symptoms and signs of concern for a brain tumor?

With modern medical imaging, many brain tumors are being identified before patients develop anything but very mild symptoms such as new or unusually prolonged headaches. Classically, brain tumors present with symptoms related to their location similar to patients who present with strokes. For example, a patient presenting with a gradual left-sided weakness of the arm or leg could be at risk for having a right-sided brain tumor. A common presentation, particularly in younger patients, is the new onset of seizures. Other common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, double vision, increasing drowsiness.
 

Q. Which people are more at risk for a brain tumor?

Brain tumors can occur at any point in a person’s life. Therefore, we all carry some risk for developing a tumor at any age. The very young, meaning less than 2 years old, and the elderly are at particular risk for having tumors, which will significantly shorten their life. Interestingly, the types of tumors seen in the different age groups vary substantially. For example, the high-grade malignant glioblastoma is the most prevalent in the elderly while the medulloblastoma is most prevalent in infants. Both tumors can be life-threatening but behave very differently clinically.
 

Q. What are the symptoms of terminal brain cancer?

The common symptoms in terminal cases of cancer are tiredness and loss of appetite, associated with pain, nausea, constipation, delirium, and dyspnea.
 

Q. Do brain tumors grow fast?

The other aspect is how fast will these tumors grow despite our best treatments. Brain tumors, in general, do not tend to spread throughout the body but are a problem due to their continued growth inside the brain.

 

Q. What is the life expectancy of a patient diagnosed with brain cancer?

It varies hugely from case to case, however, generally, it’s less than 5 years.
 

Q. What is the prime difference between brain tumors and brain cancer?

All abnormal growths are known as tumors it is a broad term that is further divided into malignant and benign cases. Malignant brain tumors are known as cancers.
