Brain Cancer (Tumour) Treatment

Hospital stay - 7 Days
Post Discharge Stay - 10 Days
Approximate Cost - $7000 - $10000

Brain cancer is a tumour or cancerous growth in the brain. A tumour, whether in your brain or elsewhere, is a mass of cells that reproduce themselves in an uncontrolled way. Tumours can be either benign or malignant. Benign brain tumours are abnormal collections of cells that reproduce slowly and usually remain separate from the surrounding normal brain. They grow slowly, do not spread to other parts of the brain and can usually be removed more easily.

Diagnosis of Brain Tumours

  • A Neurological Exam
  • Brain scans
  • CT Scans
  • MRI Scans
  • PET Scans
  • Biopsy    

Brain Cancer Treatments

Surgery: Surgery is often the first treatment if the tumour can be removed without causing harm to the surrounding brain tissue. Treatment of brain cancer is usually complex. Most treatment plans involve several consulting doctors.  The team of doctors includes neurosurgeons (surgical specialists in the brain and nervous system), oncologists, radiation oncologists (doctors who practice radiation therapy), and of course, your primary health-care provider. A patient's team may include a dietitian, a social worker, a physical therapist, and probably other specialists.  
Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is not used to treat all brain tumours. It may be used for people with high-grade primary brain tumours, either as an initial treatment alongside radiotherapy, or where the tumour has come back. In this situation, chemotherapy is unlikely to be able to cure a brain tumour, but it can sometimes shrink a tumour down or slow its growth, which can reduce symptoms.
Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is the use of high-energy rays to kills tumour cells, thereby stopping them from growing and multiplying. Radiation therapy may be used for people who cannot undergo surgery. In other cases, it is used after surgery to kill any tumour calls that may remain. Radiation therapy is a local therapy. This means that it affects only cells in its path. It does not harm cells elsewhere in the body or even elsewhere in the brain.
Minimaly Invasive Brain Tumour Surgery - Endoscopic removal of Tumour through nose (Expanded Endoscopic Trans-Nasal Approach) - Endoscpoic neurosurgery involves the insertion of an endoscope, or tiny video camera, through a small incision to treat a range of neurological conditions. The result is Faster and simpler procedure

  • Reduced post-operative complications
  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain and scarring

The endoscopic trans-nasal approach is performed through the nostrils. A natural passage way exists at the back end of the nose leading into the sphenoid sinus (an air filled cavity in the depth of the skull), which can be enlarged so that the endoscope and instruments can pass into this air filled cavity. From this region the sella turcica is easily accessed, which is the location of pituitary gland. Neurosurgeons use this route normally to remove the tumour from pituitary (the master glad).
