Procedures > Neurospine Surgery / Neuro Oncology (Brain Tumors)
A brain tumor is a group (mass) of abnormal cells that start in the brain and it can be found in different locations in the skull. Its treatment will depend on the type, size and location. The goals of the treatment may be to cure the tumor, relieve symptoms, and improve brain function or comfort. Most brain tumors may be completely removed through surgery, whereas those that are deep inside the brain or that enter brain tissue may be reduced, with the help of other treatments, in order to stop them from spreading.
Some of these other treatments are Radiation Therapies, Chemotherapy, and other medications used to treat brain tumors in children such as corticosteroids (dexamethasone, to reduce brain swelling), medicines (Urea or Mannitol to reduce brain swelling and pressure), anticonvulsants (Evetiracetam, also known as Keppra, to reduce seizures), pain medications; and antacids or histamine blockers to control stress ulcers.
