There are many different types of Brain Cancers. Primary brain tumors occur when there is abnormal and uncontrolled malignant cell division within the brain’s tissues. Metastatic brain tumors occur when cancers from other parts of the body metastasize (spread) to the brain.
Signs and symptoms of brain cancer depend on the size and location of the tumor. Headaches are a common sign of a brain tumor, but the regularity and intensity are much different than those caused by other ailments. A detectable change in the pattern of your headaches could be a sign of a brain tumor. Other symptoms include but are not limited to: changes in vision, loss of motor skill, nausea, vomiting, seizures, confusion, personality change, and hormonal disorders.
Diagnosis of brain cancer relies on computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Tissue samples can be collected and tested through biopsy or surgery.
