Brain tumours are characterized by the growth of extra or abnormal cells. Brain tumour can be both benign and malignant. While benign tumours are not dangerous, malignant tumours can be fatal. When cancerous cells start growing in any other parts of the body and start sending cells to the brain forming to form tumours, then these types of tumours are known as metastatic brain tumour.
The brain tumours may result at any age and the symptoms of the tumour are dependent on the type, size and location. There are several common symptoms of brain tumours and some of them include seizures, headaches, nausea, walking problems, changes in vision, speech and hearing, personality and mood changes.
If it is benign, then the most common brain tumour treatment is surgery, while in case of malignant tumours, the treatments usually consist of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. A brain tumour surgery may also be needed in case of malignant tumour which is in the initial stage. An examination of medical history, diagnostic tests and other reports are conducted to find out if a person is suffering from brain tumour.
