What Is Brain Cancer

Brain cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the central nervous system (CNS). Brain cancer may either be primary or secondary. Secondary brain cancer is due to metastases from other primary cancer sites such as the lung, kidney, colon or breast.

There are many different classification systems for brain tumours. Brain cancers are sometimes classified according to the histological cell type. That means they are classified according to the normal neural cell type from which the malignancy originates. Astrocytomas, Oligodendrogliomas, Meningiomas, Medulloblastomas and Ependymomas are histological malignancy types that originate from neural tissue cells. There are more than hundred and ten different kinds of brain tumours.

Some brains cancers occur more often in children. While others occur more often in adults. Malignancies seen in paediatric populations are astrocytomas, medulloblastomas and ependymomas.

Brain cancer is diagnosed by radiological investigations, with contrasted Ct scans and MRIs being the preferred studies. There are no specific blood tests for brain cancer. History and physical examination may prompt doctors to do radiological investigations, especially if worrisome or persistent signs are present.  

Symptoms Treated With TEMONAT 20 MG CAPSULE

What Are The Symptoms Of Brain Cancer

Brain cancer is a space occupying lesion in the cranium. Space that is needed for the brain and ventricles to function normally is taken up by a malignant mass. This additional mass causes increased pressure in the space-limited intracranial space (enclosed by the rigid skull). As the skull cannot expand in adulthood, adults with cancer will present with symptoms of raised intracranial pressure.

These include projectile vomiting, early morning nausea, early morning headache, visual disturbances or new onset seizures. Symptoms of raised intracranial pressure may also present other benign conditions such as meningitis, encephalitis and other space-occupying lesions such as tuberculomas in TB, or aneurysms.

Depending on where the cancer is located in the brain, it may cause specific symptoms due to impairment of that particular area of the brain's function. Symptoms may include the change in behaviour or personality (frontal brain), loss of sensation or motor function in a limb or one side of the body, difficulty maintaining balance, gait abnormalities or impaired coordination (cerebellum), visual disturbances (occipital lobe, pituitary gland, pineal gland).

Causes of diseases where TEMONAT 20 MG CAPSULE is used

What Are The Causes Of Brain Cancer

As with many types of malignancy, causes of brain cancer are not yet well defined. Environmental factors, as well as genetics, play a role, as in most cancers. Genetics cause less than ten percent of brain cancers.

More studies need to be done to identify specific risk factors for brain cancer. The most commonly proven risk factor is ionising radiation. X-rays, UV light, infrared light, and visible light are all sources of ionising radiation.

Cellphone radiation, smoking, and microwave radiation all need further studies to link its direct causation to brain cancer.

Best Foods With TEMONAT 20 MG CAPSULE

What Are The Best Foods For Brain Cancer

Although there are no specific foods linked to brain cancer, there are general rules that apply to all malignancy:

  • A diet that is high in anti-inflammatory foods and antioxidants helps prevent and fight cancer. Oxidative stress is a natural by-product of the body's energy metabolism but has directly been linked to malignancy. Stressors and toxins also increase the number of free radicals produced by the body. Antioxidants help to scavenge these free radicals before they cause damage to cells.
  • Berries are natural super foods- high in antioxidants.These include strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
  • The fresher, the better. Fresh and raw fruits and vegetables are high in nutrients that lower inflammation
  • Green leafy vegetables are high in anti-oxidants, and also assist your body in detoxification
  • Unrefined oils and unsaturated fatty acids found in coconut oil, almonds, avocados and olive oil
