Brain tumour

Specialty of Neurology

Brain tumours are a proliferation of cells that grow and multiply abnormally in the brain, they can be malignant or benign. They grow in blood vessels, cranial nerves, glands, bones, brain parenchyma or embryonic remains, and can develop either by pressing against areas of the brain or by invading the surrounding tissue. Symptoms of brain tumours include hand tremors, changes in mood, dizziness, unsteadiness and impaired alertness. Surgery is one of the most common measures to reduce the pressure that is affecting the brain, however, treatment depends on where the brain tumour is located, and the patient’s health. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used when surgery has been ruled out or has not achieved the desired results.
