Bringing Brain Tumours to Light: Understanding, Treating, and Dispelling Myths

News Desk, News Nation 360 : Brain tumours continue to be a major worry for people, and they are frequently misunderstood. It's critical to dispel myths and highlight the progress made in comprehending, diagnosing, and treating these intricate illnesses as we mark World Brain Tumour Day. Dr. Rathijit Mitra, Consultant Neurosurgeon, Department of Neuro Sciences, CMRI has discussed this. Brain tumours can be either primary or metastatic, and primary brain tumours are graded based on their growth rate. Grade IV tumours are the most aggressive and malignant. Even benign brain tumours may require surgery and other treatments. While brain tumours were once a death sentence, success rates for treatment have increased significantly, and even grade IV tumours can be controlled now. Early detection and treatment location are important for successful treatment and recovery. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing underlying health conditions, and engaging in mentally stimulating activities can all contribute to brain health. Early diagnosis is key, and symptoms like headaches, vision problems, nausea, vomiting, and seizures can all be signs of a brain tumour. A multidisciplinary approach is important for treating brain tumours, and there has been significant progress made in the field of neurosurgery in recent years. There is a misconception that brain tumours are always fatal, but with early detection and a comprehensive treatment plan that may include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, patients can experience a good quality of life. While some lifestyle factors can promote brain health, there is no evidence that things like cellphone use cause brain tumours. Early signs of a brain tumour can be subtle and include headaches, vision problems, nausea, and vomiting. If anyone experiences any of these it's important to see a doctor to get a diagnosis.
