What is Brain Tumor?
The word ‘Tumor’ is in itself the best explanation for this dreaded ailment. Brain tumor is a mass of abnormal cells which gets develop in brain. These tumors, however are not always cancerous/malignant and can also be benign (non-cancerous). Any kind of tumor whether it is benign or malignant needs to be treated as the increasing size can affect the surrounding areas leading to increase in pressure inside the skull. It can cause brain damage if not treated. In case of a malignant tumor, spreading in other areas may also result in fatality.

Treatment for Brain Tumor
Once you are diagnosed with brain tumor panic is not the solution; our doctors at BLK will counsel you all about the treatment procedure and will also be with you all along your battle. In case of a benign tumor the doctors will straight away go for surgery; however if the size of the tumor is huge then doctors may go for alternative methods. In case of a malignant brain tumor, after your surgery you will be required to go for radiotherapy, chemotherapy or both. However, surgery is not always possible in case of brain tumour. In case, a brain tumor is developed in the brain stem then the doctors would only go for radiotherapy or chemotherapy. After the surgery and therapies and successful recovery you may face some functional and coordination issues. In that case, our team of physiotherapists, speech therapists and occupational therapists will help you in returning back to your life.
