All About Brain Tumor
Brain tumor is a condition when cells of the brain start multiplying abnormally leading to a cancerous or sometimes non-cancerous state. If not treated, it can spread to the adjacent parts leading to some serious complications. Though, there are no specific brain tumor causes, it can happen due to genetic reasons, invasion from cancerous cells of the surrounding regions, or due to excessive radiation exposure.
Symptoms of Brain Tumor
· Unexplained weakness of one or more limbs
· Persistent and progressive headache
· Vomiting and nausea
· Convulsions or seizures
· Difficulty in walking
Prevention and Treatment
Prevention cannot avoid brain tumors, but early detection through regular screening after witnessing any of the symptoms can definitely lower the complications and lead to better treatment results. The main treatment for brain cancer is surgery followed by radiation and chemotherapy.
