A Brain Tumour is an abnormal growth of cells within the brain, which can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign).
- Surgery For Brain Tumour in India – Craniotomy. Craniotomy Surgery in India is done by opening a small flap of skull to access the tumour and then taking the tumour out surgically. If the brain tumour is located in a place that makes it accessible for an operation, your surgeon will work to remove as much of your brain tumor as possible. In some cases, tumours are small and easy to separate from surrounding brain tissue, which makes complete surgical removal In other cases, tumors can’t be separated from surrounding tissue or they’re located near sensitive areas in your brain, making surgery risky. In these situations your doctor may try to remove as much of the tumour as is safe. Even removing a portion of the brain tumour may help reduce your signs and symptoms. In some cases only a small biopsy is taken to confirm the diagnosis.
- Radio Surgery for Brain Tumours in India –Stereotactic radio surgery (SRS) is not a form of surgery in the traditional sense. Instead, Radio Surgery for brain cancers in India uses multiple beams of radiation to give a highly focused form of radiation treatment to kill the tumor cells in a very small area. Each beam of radiation isn’t particularly powerful, but the point where all the beams meet — at the brain tumor — receives a very large dose of radiation to kill the tumour cells. Radio surgery is typically done in one treatment, and in most cases you can go home the same day.
- Radiation Therapy in India for Brain Cancers and Brain Tumours – Radiation Therapyuses high-energy beams, such as X-rays or protons, to kill tumor cells. Radiation therapy can come from a machine outside your body (external beam radiation), or, in very rare cases, radiation can be placed inside your body close to your brain tumor (brachytherapy). External beam radiation can focus just on the area of your brain where the tumour is located, or it can be applied to your entire brain (whole brain radiation). Whole brain radiation is most often used to treat cancer that has spread to the brain from some other part of the body.
- Chemotherapy for Brain Cancers in India–Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill tumour cells. Chemotherapy drugs can be taken orally in pill form or injected into a vein (intravenously). The chemotherapy drug used most often to treat brain tumors is temozolomide (Temodar), which is taken as a pill. Many other chemotherapy drugs are available and may be used depending on the type of cancer. Another type of chemotherapy can be placed during surgery. When removing all or part of the brain tumor, your surgeon may place one or more disk-shaped wafers in the space left by the tumor. These wafers slowly release a chemotherapy drug over the next several days
- The other Brain Tumours Treatments include – Cyber Knife and Gamma Knife
