  • Grade 2: These tumors are hidden in the brain, mild severe but more likely to come back after surgery treatment.
  • Grade3: Consider as cancerous cannot be completely cured
  • Grade 4: Cancerous cells in tumor are actively diving, these tumors can grow quickly. This stage of brain tumor considered dangerously life threatening.

Cause of Brain Tumor

          Benign brain tumor is an abnormality on genetic brain cell or mutation cell dividing itself in unusual growth. The buildup of extra cells forms a mass or tumor then cause damage to nearby brain and nerves.

          Cancerous brain tumor cells can be formed within the brain or begins elsewhere and spreads to the brain through bloodstream results in harmful tumor, actively growing and cause much more damage to the body compared to benign tumor.

How to Cure Brain Tumor

           Primarily, low-grade of brain tumor can be treating by Radiosurgery or tracking its development without any treatment needed, bigger mass of brain tumor damaging the body required “Surgery” which is the main treatment methodology chosen for most brain tumors. Currently, brain tumor surgery is usually done through the nasal cavity by using Microscope. As well as endocrine tumor that can be cured by an Endoscopic Surgery at the very first grades.

          To remove larger mass of tumor, a neurosurgeon may make an opening in the skull. If the tumor cannot be completely removed due to other surrounded vital brain tissues, a small piece of the tumor is removed to examine under cytology or pathology in order to consider radiation therapy if cancerous cell is found.

As the cause of brain tumor occurrence is unknown and we are unlikely to avoid uncontrollable risk factors such age and heredity. So, what we can do to protect ourselves from developing brain tumor is live carefully; stay away from cigarettes smokes, toxics, radiations, or other dangerous chemicals.
