Neuro Oncology Treatment

Brain tumors can occur anywhere in the brain. Its severity depends upon the size and the location of the brain tumor. But generally, it is classified as benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancerous). There are various forms of Brain tumors and not all of them are cancerous or dangerous. A spinal cord tumor on the other hand develops within the vertebral coulombs of the spinal cord which is also known as an intradural tumor. When the tumor affects the functioning of vertebrae then it may be called a vertebral tumor.

Varied types of Brain and Spinal cord tumors:

There are two major types of brain and spinal cord tumors-

Primary tumor: When the tumor begins at the site of the brain or spinal cord then it is referred to as a primary tumor.

Metastatic tumor: Tumors that begin in any other part of the body and reach the brain or spinal cord. At this stage, the tumor changes to cancer. It is more common in adults.

Classification of tumor is usually based upon the type of cell, grade of tumor, and location of the tumor

On the basis of type of cell: Tumors can occur in any type of cell or tissue in the brain or spinal cord. Tumors can be found in similar types of cells or different types of cells as well.  Tumors begin at one site and spread around the infected.

Grade of tumor:  Brain and spinal cord tumors can be divided into 4 grades. In grade 1 and 2 tumors, the tumor grows slowly and it does not spread to nearby tissues generally. Grade 3 and 4 are severe as they grows quickly and spreads to nearby tissues. This requires series of treatments.

Location of tumor: Our brain is the most complex organ in our body which is responsible for all bodily functions.  The part of the brain that suffers from the tumor, its function gets affected by it.
