What Is Brain Cancer?

When malignant cancers (cancer cells) grow, they interfere in the functioning of the body, and other normal brain functions. There are two types of brain cancer:

  • Primary Brain Cancer - A brain is made up of many different types of cells and when any one type of cells loses its normal features, it develops into cancer. These cells grow abnormally and turn into a cancer. That cancer which results from the abnormal growth of the brain cells is known as primary brain cancer.
  • Metastatic Brain Cancer - It is a cancer which occurs in any other part of the body and then move to the brain. Some of the most common cancers that spread to the brain are kidney, breast and lung cancers. Usually, it is named after the tissue from which the cancer occurs, like metastatic kidney cancer and metastatic breast cancer.

ALL BRAIN CANCERS ARE NOT CANCEROUS

 

What Are the Symptoms of Brain Cancer?

It is necessary to visit the best brain cancer specialist in India if a person experiences any of the below symptoms:

  • Weakness in particular part of the body
  • Dizziness
  • Severe headaches, especially in the morning with nausea / vomiting
  • Paraesthesia (abnormal sensation)
  • Clumsiness or balance disorder
  • Single or multiple muscle jerks / seizures
  • Altered mental status
  • Difficulty with vision / Blurred vision
  • Speech difficulties
  • Hearing problems

As the symptoms are gradual, they can go unnoticed. However, if a cancer occurs in a specific brain lobe, symptoms may be more noticeable.

Different Grades of Brain Cancer

Typically, brain cancer has the following grades:

  • Grade I - Tissues are benign. Also, the cell growth is very slow.
  • Grade II - Tissues become more cancer like but higher proliferation than grade I.
  • Grade III - Malignant tissues have abnormal cells which actively start multiplying.
  • Grade IV - Malignant tissue has the most cells which are abnormal and it grows rapidly.

Causes of Brain Cancer

Brain cancer occurs when there is an abnormal growth of cells in the tissues of the brain. Though the exact causes of brain cancer are unknown; genetic factors, environmental toxins, prolonged radiation, HIV infection, smoking, exposure to chemicals like embalmers, benzene, vinyl chloride, etc. are some of the brain cancer causes.

What Are the Treatment Options for Brain Cancer?

Below are the treatment options available for brain cancer treatment in India. However, the brain tumor treatment cost will depend on the type, size, and location of the cancer along with patient’s age and health.

  • Surgery - Surgery is done to remove abnormal / cancer tissue. However, it is often better not to operate in such cases where the brain cancer is at that portion of the brain where the surgery can cause damage to the other portions. In cases, where the surgery cannot remove all the cancer cells, it eases symptoms and makes other treatments more effective.
  • Radiation Therapy - By using high energy radiation, this therapy attempts to destroy the cancer cell's ability to function and replicate. Usually, it is used after surgery to destroy any cancer cells that remain in the area.
  • Chemotherapy - By using certain drugs, doctors attempt to destroy brain cancer cells. Chemotherapy is given as tablets, or injections. Doctors may also place an implant containing a chemotherapy drug directly into the brain cancer cavity.
  • Immunotherapy - Under this, immune cells of a human body are directed towards destroying some specific cancer cell types. The therapy not only slows down the growth of cancer cells, but it also ensures it doesn’t spread to the other part of the body.

Take your time to adjust to the physical and emotional changes and redefine your life’s routine at your pace. Here are a few things that can help a cancer survivor to lead a better life post-treatment:

  • Grade I / Grade II cancers or Benign cancer patients return to work soon after surgery
  • Grade III / IV- have to undergo Radiotherapy / Chemotherapy and would take care of the side effects of the treatment for 4-8 weeks
  • Recurrence of cancers occur in grade III / IV types after few months to years
  • Seek help from your doctor, family members and friends to deal with depression, which is common among cancer survivors
  • Stay positive, but do not let your positivity stop you from conveying your loved ones and doctors about how you feel, including negative thoughts
  • Be aware that cancer recurrence is beyond your control, so focus on today rather than thinking of an uncertain future
  • Be as physically active as possible
  • Indulge in healthy eating habits

Follow Up Care after Brain Cancer Treatment

Your visit to the doctor should not end with your last brain cancer treatment. It is essential to be regular about your follow-up appointments with the doctor. Such visits would allow your doctor to monitor your health and look for signs of recurrence. Also, post-treatment visit can help identify any late physical or psychological effects of the treatment.

The frequency of your follow-up appointments would depend on the stage of your cancer, treatment received and any other treatment-related health issues which you may develop. Since this varies from one patient to another, talk to your doctor about your specific follow-up needs as soon your Brain cancer treatment comes to an end.
