Brain Tumour and Imaging

Brain tumours are classified on the basis of the location of the tumor and the type of tissue involved and may be malignant or benign. Primary brain tumors arise from the brain cells and include astroglial tumours, oligodendroglia tumours, neuroglial tumors, ependymal tumors, embryonal cell tumors , and germ-cell tumors. Secondary or metastatic tumors metastasize from another part of the body and are more common than primary brain tumors. The most common types of cancer that spreads to the brain include melanoma, breast, colon and lung. The clinical signs and symptoms related to mass effect like seizures, headache and neurological and cognitive deficits.Chemotherapy treatment of brain tumour is done with anti-cancer drugs which are given to destroy or control cancer cells. Morphological assessment is done by using computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging which is still the workhorse of tumor detection.
