Know About Brain Tumour

A tumour or an abnormal growth of cells located within the brain or the central spinal canal is called brain tumour. It can crop up from the brain cells, the membranes around the brain (known as meninges), nerves, or glands, which cause damage and inflammation and places pressure within the skull and compresses the brain tissue. It is intrinsically serious and life-threatening because of its insidious and infiltrative character in the intracranial cavity.

The different types of brain tumours are:

  • Gliomas

  • Meningiomas

  • Ependymomas

  • Craniopharyngiomas

  • Pituitary tumours

  • Pineal gland tumours

  • Lymphoma of the brain

Diagnosis of Brain Tumours

Medical oncologists in India use the following tests to diagnose brain cancer and tumours in patients:

MRI scan – Magnetic resonance imaging detects signals emitted from normal and abnormal tissue, providing clear images of most tumours.

CT scan – Computed Tomography scan can show a combination of soft tissue, bone, and blood vessels. CT images can determine some types of tumours, as well as help detect swelling, bleeding, and bone and tissue calcification.

PET scan – This scan measures brain activity and sends this information to a computer, which creates a live image. It is used to see the difference between scar tissue, recurring tumour cells and cells destroyed by radiation treatment (necrosis).

Biopsy – A piece of the malignancy is removed through open surgery or in stereotactic fashion using a rigid frame to fix skull and localizing tumour under guidance of CT scan or MRI. The sample tissue is then sent to a pathology laboratory to ascertain presence of cancerous cells.

How are Brain Tumours Treated?

Brain tumour is no more a scary health condition, as modern technology and advanced surgical modalities now offer near-perfect clinical outcomes. Patients can soon return to normal life after the treatment. Some of the treatment options available include:

Surgical Treatment Approach

Surgery is often the first treatment if the tumour can be removed without MRIcausing harm to the surrounding brain tissue. It is one of the most complex treatments of all cancers, which is performed only after several consultations. The team of doctors includes your doctor, neurosurgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists.

Radiation Therapy Treatment Approach

High energy radiation rays like X-rays, gamma rays or protons are used to kill tumour cells after surgery and given over a period of 5-6 weeks. Radiation therapy may be used for people who cannot undergo surgery and also used after surgery to kill any remaining cancer cells. Some of the advanced radiation therapies include:

  • 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

  • Stereotactic Radio-surgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT)

  • Proton beam therapy

  • High-definition Rapid Arc

Chemotherapy Treatment Approach

It is not used to treat all brain tumours. Chemotherapy is used for people with high-grade primary brain tumours, either as an initial treatment alongside radiotherapy, or where the tumour has come back. It is unlikely to be able to cure a brain tumour, but it can sometimes shrink a tumour down or slow its growth, which can reduce its symptoms.
