Excision of Brain Tumour


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

Many different types of brain tumors exist. Some brain tumors are noncancerous (benign), and some brain tumors are cancerous (malignant). Brain tumors can begin in the brain (primary brain tumors), or cancer can begin in other parts of the body and spread to the brain (secondary, or metastatic, brain tumors).

How quickly a brain tumor grows can vary greatly. The growth rate as well as location of a brain tumor determines how it affects the function of the nervous system.

Brain tumor treatment options depend on the type of brain tumor the patient has, as well as its size and location.

What is a brain tumour?

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

Many different types of brain tumors exist. Some brain tumors are noncancerous (benign), and some brain tumors are cancerous (malignant). Brain tumors can begin in the brain (primary brain tumors), or cancer can begin in other parts of the body and spread to the brain (secondary, or metastatic, brain tumors).

How quickly a brain tumor grows can vary greatly. The growth rate as well as location of a brain tumor determines how it affects the function of the nervous system.

Brain tumor treatment options depend on the type of brain tumor the patient has, as well as its size and location.

What are the Kinds of brain tumours?

Brain tumors are graded according to how fast they grow and how likely they are to grow back after treatment. Grade 1 and 2 tumors are low grade, and grade 3 and 4 tumors are high grade.

There are 2 main types of brain tumors:

  • Non-cancerous (benign) brain tumors – these are low grade (grade 1 or 2), which means they grow slowly and are less likely to return after treatment
  • Cancerous (malignant) brain tumors – these are high grade (grade 3 or 4) and either start in the brain (primary tumors) or spread into the brain from elsewhere (secondary tumors); they're more likely to grow back after treatment

Brain tumors that originates in the brain:

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

Primary brain tumors begin when normal cells acquire errors (mutations) in their DNA. These mutations allow cells to grow and divide at increased rates and to continue living when healthy cells would die. The result is a mass of abnormal cells, which forms a tumor.

In adults, primary brain tumors are much less common than are secondary brain tumors, in which cancer begins elsewhere and spreads to the brain.

Many different types of primary brain tumors exist. Each gets its name from the type of cells involved. Examples include:

  • Gliomas: These tumors begin in the brain or spinal cord and include astrocytomas, ependymomas, glioblastomas, oligoastrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas
  • Meningiomas: A meningioma is a tumor that arises from the membranes that surround your brain and spinal cord (meninges). Most meningiomas are noncancerous.
  • Acoustic Neuromas (schwannomas): These are benign tumors that develop on the nerves that control balance and hearing leading from your inner ear to your brain.
  • Pituitary adenomas: These are mostly benign tumors that develop in the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. These tumors can affect the pituitary hormones with effects throughout the body.
  • Medulloblastomas: These are the most common cancerous brain tumors in children. A medulloblastoma starts in the lower back part of the brain and tends to spread through the spinal fluid. These tumors are less common in adults, but they do occur.
  • Germ cell tumors: Germ cell tumors may develop during childhood where the testicles or ovaries will form. But sometimes germ cell tumors affect other parts of the body, such as the brain.
  • Craniopharyngiomas: These rare, noncancerous tumors start near the brain's pituitary gland, which secretes hormones that control many body functions. As the craniopharyngioma slowly grows, it can affect the pituitary gland and other structures near the brain.

Cancer that begins elsewhere and spreads to the brain:

Secondary (metastatic) brain tumors are tumors that result from cancer that starts elsewhere in the body and then spreads (metastasizes) to the brain.

Secondary brain tumors most often occur in people who have a history of cancer. But in rare cases, a metastatic brain tumor may be the first sign of cancer that began elsewhere in the body.

In adults, secondary brain tumors are far more common than are primary brain tumors.

Any cancer can spread to the brain, but common types include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Melanoma

What is the difference between a malignant and benign brain tumour?

A malignant brain tumour contains cancer cells which grow into the healthy brain tissue and interferes with the function of the brain. Malignant brain tumours are likely to grow rapidly and re-occur. Malignant tumours are given grade levels that represent how abnormal the tumour cells look and how fast they might grow.

A benign brain tumour does not contain cancer cells. Benign tumours press on sensitive areas in the brain and cause symptoms. They do not invade surrounding brain tissue. They are not likely to grow back once surgically removed.


What are the symptoms of a brain tumour?

Symptoms of brain tumor are usually location and size specific. Location of the tumor plays a big part in behaviour and/or physical changes:

  • Frontal Lobe: Tumors in this region cause inappropriate social behaviour and poor reasoning.
  • Temporal Lobe: Tumors here will cause memory loss, hearing loss and language difficulties.
  • Parietal Lobe: Tumors present here can cause difficulty with reading, writing, recognition and visual representation.
  • Occipital Lobe: Tumors here can cause loss of vision or poor vision.
  • Cerebellum: Tumors in this region can cause poor balance and posture.
  • Brain Stem: Tumors present in the brain stem causes seizure, respiratory problems, headaches and partial paralysis.

Why act immediately ?

Brain tumors can affect people of any age, including children, although they tend to be more common in older adults. Generally, around 15 out of every 100 people with a cancerous brain tumor will survive for 10 years or more after being diagnosed and hence, early diagnosis is key for maximum chances of recovery. Survival rates are difficult to predict because brain tumors are uncommon and there are many different types, but in spite of this, quick and early diagnosis can initiate prompt treatment and save a life.

The causes of most brain tumors are unknown, but there are several risk factors which may increase the chances of developing a brain tumor, which include:

  • Age – The risk of getting a brain tumor increases with age (most brain tumors happen in older adults aged 85 to 89), although some types of brain tumor are more common in children.
  • Radiation – Exposure to radiation accounts for a very small number of brain tumors; some types of brain tumors are more common in people who have had radiotherapy, CT scans or X-rays of the head.
  • Family history and genetic conditions – Some genetic conditions are known to increase the risk of getting a brain tumor, including tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis type 1, neurofibromatosis type 2 and Turner syndrome.

What are the different treatments for Brain Tumor?

For a brain tumor, the prognosis depends on several factors, including:

  • Age
  • The type of tumor
  • Location
  • Effectiveness of treatment
  • General health and fitness

The treatment also depends on:

  • How big it is and how far it's spread
  • How abnormal the cells are

Treatments for brain tumors include:

  • Steroids
  • Medicines to help with symptoms
  • Surgery
  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy

After being diagnosed with a brain tumor, steroids may be prescribed to help reduce swelling around the tumor.

Other medicines can be used to help with other symptoms of brain tumors, such as anti-epileptic medicines for seizures and painkillers for headaches.

Surgery is often used to remove brain tumors. The aim is to remove as much abnormal tissue as safely as possible.

  • It is not always possible to remove all of a tumor, so further treatment with radiotherapy or chemotherapy may be needed to treat any abnormal cells left behind.
  • Treatment for non-cancerous tumors is often successful and a full recovery is possible.
  • Sometimes there is a small chance the tumor could return, so regular follow-up is advised
