BRAIN TUMOR

OVERVIEW

Tonsillitis is a kind of disorder which involves swelling of tonsils. The major reason behind tonsillitis is an infection caused by the bacteria or virus. Tonsils are small lymphoepithelial tissues situated near the oropharynx and nasopharynx. These immunocompetent tissues are the immune system's first line of defense against ingested or inhaled foreign pathogens. They are located on both sides of the throat.

Symptoms

Depending upon the Brain Tumor's size, location and rate of growth, the signs and symptoms vary greatly and include:

  • Change in pattern of headaches
  • Unexplained nausea or vomiting
  • Vision problems
  • Gradual loss of sensation or movement in an arm or a leg
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Speech difficulties
  • Confusion in everyday matters
  • Seizures
  • Hearing issues
  • Personality or behavior changes

Causes 

Primary Brain Tumors begin when normal cells acquire mutations in their DNA that allow cells to grow and divide at increased rates and to continue living when healthy cells would die. The result is the formation of a mass of abnormal cells called tumor.

Treatments

A Brain Tumor can be treated depending upon the type, size and location of the tumor. In cases where tumors are small and easy to separate from surrounding brain tissue, doctors go for a surgery. Apart from or along with surgeries, radiation therapy and radiosurgery may work wonders in treating the condition. Further, chemotherapy and targeted drug therapy can be employed for the treatment purpose. It is important to operate rehabilitation programs offering physical, occupational and speech therapies to Brain Tumor survivors.
