BRAIN TUMOR

Over View

A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain.

Many different kinds of brain tumors exist. Some brain tumors are noncancerous (benign), and a few brain tumors are cancerous (malignant). Brain tumors will begin in your brain (primary brain tumors), or cancer can begin in different parts of your body and spread to your brain (secondary, or metastatic, brain tumors).

How quickly a brain tumor grows will vary greatly. The expansion rate as well as location of a brain tumor determines however it’ll have an effect on the function of your nervous system.

Brain tumor treatment options depend upon the kind of brain tumor you’ve got, as well as its size and location.

Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of a brain tumor vary greatly and depend upon the brain tumor’s size, location and rate of growth.

General signs and symptoms caused by brain tumors might include:

  • New onset or change in pattern of headaches
  • Headaches that gradually become a lot of frequent and more severe
  • Vision issues, like blurred vision, double vision or loss of peripheral vision
  • Gradual loss of sensation or movement in an arm or a leg
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Speech difficulties
  • Confusion in everyday matters
  • Personality or behavior changes
  • Hearing issues

Causes

Primary brain tumors originate within the brain itself or in tissues near to it, like within the brain-covering membranes (meninges), cranial nerves, pituitary gland or pineal gland.

Primary brain tumors begin once normal cells acquire errors (mutations) in their DNA.
