Our brain allow us to think and talk and to remember the things we’ve thought and said. It helps us move around and have emotions—and also to hear, feel, and see.
A Brain Tumor is an abnormal growth of cells that occur within the brain. Tumor can be primary or secondary, benign (non-cancerous) or malignant.

Tumors that begin in brain tissue are known as primary brain Tumors. They can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). 

The exact cause of brain tumors is yet unknown. However, scientists are studying tumors and trying to come up with new treatment and diagnostic techniques which will help in early detection and treatment of tumors.

Some Tumors are asymptomatic i.e. symptoms may not show up unless tumor becomes  large in size and starts pressing on or encroaching on other parts of your brain and keep them from functioning normally.

See your health care provider right away if you have any of the following symptoms:

Brain Tumor may be diagnosed and evaluated using one or more of the following tests:-

Treatment for Brain Tumor is tailor made keeping the patient’s age, general health, the size, location and type of the tumor.

New therapies for cancer are being developed all the time. When a therapy shows promise, it is studied in a lab and improved as much as possible. It is then tested on people with cancer which are called clinical trials.

Medanta is a pioneer and one of the few hospitals in India, when it comes to bringing path breaking, innovative technology to India such as

  • Brain SUITE
  • Endoscopic Neurosurgery Theatre
  • Cyberknife

Once the Brain Tumor is diagnosed, the patient needs to be careful and keep all the appointments with consultants and primary health care provider. In general, people with Brain Tumor are at an increased risk for additional medical problems and, potentially, reoccurrence of cancer or worsening of their symptoms.

The major factors that influence survival are the type of cancer, its location, whether it can be surgically removed or reduced in size, patient’s age, and other medical problems.The long-term survival rate (greater than five years) for people with primary brain cancer is promising with aggressive surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. However, these treatment do prolong survival in the and most important is that these treatments and rehabilitation councellings not only improve quality of life, but give you more time with your loved ones with no fear to loose them.

Living with cancer presents many new challenges, both for the patient and for their family and friends.
