What are the 10 important symptoms of a brain tumor? Different and new types of treatments are developing, experts say. Smart drugs have increased success.
Experts have described 10 important negligible signs of a brain tumor, giving important warnings and recommendations. More than a third of patients have had neurological symptoms and symptoms since the outbreak began, experts said.
It is very important that patients admitted to the hospital with such mild neurological symptoms and symptoms are evaluated carefully and without ignoring that these complaints may also be associated with a brain tumor.
Clinical and experimental research on brain tumors, which are increasing incidence today; it shows that some miscoded genes and proteins play an active role in the development of tumors.
Some factors, such as radiation and carcinogenic chemicals, also facilitate the formation of brain tumors. In addition, it is observed that there is a tendency to familial transition in the formation of some brain tumors.
Different and new types of treatments are developing
In particular, the increased knowledge of the pathways used by tumors during the formation of brain tumors and the knowledge of the key genes and proteins active here and the use of a number of biomarkers that reveal molecular changes have led to significant improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors. In this context, the development of targeted smart drugs that act only on harmful tissues called tumors without damaging normal tissue was ensured.
In patients with pre-diagnosis of brain tumors, priority treatment should be determined radiologically, whether the tumor is benign or malignant. Today, surgical treatment is often considered a priority in the treatment of brain tumors, whether benign or malignant. Especially by removing these tumors completely or close to full, a long and healthy life is provided for our patients.
Smart drugs boost success
The factors that are decisive in the surgical treatment of the brain tumor are defined as ‘the type and benign appearance of the tumor, location, size, age of the patient, general condition and performance of the patient, neurological condition of the patient, life-threatening condition of the tumor and whether there are additional systemic problems that may affect the patient’s decision to operate’.
In some benign tumors, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are given in addition to surgical treatment, unless there is a specific cause in nearly all malignant tumors.
In addition, today we are very happy with the results of local radiotherapy applications after surgical treatment in some of the benign tumors and all malignant tumors. In addition, with the new methods applied to the tumor area removed after surgical treatment, side effects are reduced while the effectiveness of treatment is significantly increased.
Targeted smart drugs developed in the field of oncology in recent years have led to new hopes in the treatment of brain tumors. The negativity caused by chemotherapy drugs, which were used until very recently but did not have much benefit in the treatment of brain tumors, has now disappeared with targeted smart drugs and at the same time increased the chances of success of radiotherapy applied after surgery and surgery with smart drugs.
10 important symptoms of a brain tumor!
Brain and Neurosurgery Specialists list the symptoms of brain tumors as follows:
- Nausea or vomiting that accompanies headaches,
- Loss of consciousness and disorders in the level of consciousness,
- Seizures (epileptics) that have never been before,
- loss of sensation or strength in part of the body, lethargy,
- Vision loss, double vision or hearing loss that develops in a short time,
- Memory and behavioral disorders,
- Speech disorders,
- Imbalance and walking problems,
- Hormonal disorders and related clinical symptoms (early puberty, growth of hands and feet, menstrual cycle disorders, hyperthyroidism, cortisol failure or excess…) are involved.
