Abnormal growth of the brain cells results in a Brain Tumour. Brain Tumour can be benign or malignant. The best diagnosis for brain tumour is a Contrast CT Scan of the Brain or a Plain MRI of the Brain. The best test to find out whether a tumour is benign or malignant is a biopsy but getting tissue from the brain tumour to do biopsy is not always possible. In most of the cases of brain tumour surgical removal of the tumour is the best line of treatment. Once the tumour is removed from the brain, the tissue is sent for biopsy to confirm whether the tumour is benign or malignant. If the tumour is found to be malignant then further treatment might be required. Since brain is one of the most complex organ, any tumour in the brain is extremely difficult to operate and very high skills on the part of the neurosurgeon are required to successfully remove the tumour.
The Brain Tumours are classfied on the basis of their nature as well as their location in the brain. Brain tumours are also classified in grades from I to IV. In adults the common types of brain tumours found are astrocytoma, meningioma and oligodendroglioma. In children the common brain tumours are medulloblastoma, astrocytoma, ependymoma and brain stem glioma. Brain stem tumours are most difficult to operate and have the lowest success rate. The average success rate of brain stem tumours in India is close to 90%. Very highly advanced microscopes are used to operate the most complex of the brain tumours for good results.
Some of the brain tumours are best treated without surgery using Gamma Knife which is a non interventional procedure of burning the tumour using very sophisticated radiation. Mostly tumours measuring less than 1 cm in size can be treated through Gamma Knife.
