Brain tumours

Tumours of the brain occur in children as well as adults and are of many types. Some of these tumours such as glioma, medulloblastoma, ependymoma etc., arise from the brain tissue itself; others such as meningioma arise from the coverings of the brain; and some tumours, called metastatis, are caused by spread of cancer from other parts of the body to the brain. The common symptoms of brain tumours are headache, nausea and vomiting, convulsions (fits), paralysis, etc.
Many of these tumours need a combination of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy for cure. After evaluating your case, we will advise you regarding the best combination of treatments for you and also connect you with the appropriate specialists. Highly precise radiation to the tumour (Rapid Arc, IGRT, SRS) is essential to protect the brain from the effects of radiation and thus minimise side effects.
