Brain Tumor Removal
A Brain Tumor is a collection, mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain. Your Skull, which encompasses your brain, is very rigid. Any growth in mass or abnormal cells inside such a confined space can cause problems.
Brain tumors are of various types. Some brain tumors are noncancerous (benign) and some are cancerous (malignant). When the brain tumors grow in size, they can cause the pressure to increase inside your skull. This can cause brain damage which can lead to death.
Brain tumors are mainly categorized into two types: primary and secondary. Primary brain tumors develop in your brain. Most primary brain tumors are benign. A secondary brain tumor occurs when cancer cells spread to your brain from any other organ, such as breast or lung.Costing →
Surgery is the usual treatment for most brain tumors. To remove a brain tumor, a neurosurgeon makes an opening in the skull. This operation is called a craniotomy. Whenever possible, the surgeon attempts to remove the entire tumor. If the tumor cannot be completely removed without damaging vital brain tissue, your doctor may remove as much of the tumor as possible. Partial removal helps to relieve symptoms by reducing pressure on the brain and reduces the number of tumors to be treated by radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
Some tumors cannot be removed. In such cases, your doctor may do only a biopsy. A small piece of the tumor is removed so that a pathologist can examine it under a microscope to determine the type of cells it contains. This helps your doctor decide which treatment to use.
Sometimes, a biopsy is done with a needle. Doctors use a special head frame (like a halo) and CT scans or MRI to pinpoint the exact location of the tumor. The surgeon makes a small hole in the skull and then guides a needle to the tumor. Using this technique to do a biopsy or for treatment is called stereotaxis.
Other advanced techniques during surgery include brain mapping to find functional pathways near tumors, endoscopy to perform biopsies and open spinal fluid pathways through a small scope and advanced frameless stereotaxic computer-assisted tumor resections. Intraoperative MRI also is available to help maximize tumor removal.
