What is a Brain Tumor?
A mass of abnormal cells in the brain tissue, resulting from uncontrolled multiplication and accumulation, is known as a brain tumor. These tumors can be non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant) and may vary in shape and size. With 120 types accounting for a staggering 85-90% of all primary tumors of the nervous system, brain tumors have become a significant concern. They are the leading cause of solid cancer-related mortality in children under the age of 20.
What are the primary risk factors for developing a Brain Tumor?
Family history: accounts for approximately 5-10% of all cases
Chemical exposure: either at home or in the workplace
Radiation exposure: from medical treatments or due to nuclear fallout
No history of chickenpox
What are the types of Brain Tumors?
Primary Brain Tumor:
Originates in the brain itself, possibly developing from brain cells, nerves, etc. These can be:
Aggressive and fast-growing
May result in permanent disability or even death
Of these, the most common are ‘Gliomas’ accounting for approximately 78% of all cases
Astrocytomas, ependymomas, glioblastoma multiforme, medulloblastomas, and oligodendrogliomas are types of these ‘gliomas’
Not as aggressive
May compress normal brain cells and functions due to increased size
Examples include chordomas, craniopharyngiomas, gangliocitomas, meningiomas, and pituitary adenomas
Secondary Brain Tumor:
Also known as Metastatic brain tumors, which spread to other parts of the body
1 in 4 brain tumor patients is likely to have a metastatic brain tumor
What are the symptoms of Brain Tumor?
Seizure and tremors
Compromised motor functions
Partial or complete paralysis
Dizziness or fainting
Defects in vision and hearing
Nausea and vomiting
Loss of balance
