  1. 1. Neurologist The brain is the organ of destiny. It holds within its humming mechanism secrets that will
  2. 2. Who are neurologist? A neurologist is a physician who specializes in neurology, and is trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat neurological disorders. Neurology is the medical specialty related to the human nervous system. The nervous system encompasses the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. A specialist physician who treats patients suffering from neurological disease is called a neurologist. Related yet distinct fields include: psychiatry, neurosurgery, and their subspecialties. of medicine
  3. 3. BRAIN TUMOR-:
  4. 4. Brain tumorA brain tumor is an abnormal growth of cells within the brain, which can be cancerous or non-cancerous (benign). It is defined as any intracranial tumor created by abnormal and uncontrolled cell division, normally either in the brain itself (neurons, glial cells (astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, ependymal cells), lymphatic blood vessels), in the cranial nerves (myelin-producing Schwann cells), in the brain envelopes (meninges), skull, pituitary and pineal gland, or spread from cancers primarily located in other organs (metastatic tumors).A neurologist deals with such problems. Primary (true) brain tumors are commonly located in the posterior cranial fossa in children and in the anterior two-thirds of the cerebral hemispheres in adults, although they can affect any part of the brain.
  5. 5. Symptoms of Brain tumorSymptoms of a brain tumor can be - •General •Specific A general symptom is caused by the pressure of the tumor on the brain or spinal cord. A Specific symptoms are caused when a specific part of the brain is not working normally because of the tumor. For many people with a brain tumor, they were diagnosed when they went to the doctor after experiencing a problem, such as a headache or other changes.
  6. 6. General symptoms include :•Headaches, which may be severe and may worsen with activity or in the early morning •Seizures. Motor seizures, also called convulsions, are sudden involuntary movements of a person’s muscles. People may experience different types of seizures, including myclonic and tonic-clonic (grand mal). Certain drugs can help prevent or control them. The differences between these types of seizures can be found below: •Myclonic Single or multiple muscles twitches,jerks,spams. •Tonic-Clonic(Grand Mal) Loss of consciousness and body tone, followed by twitching and relaxing muscles(called contraction). Loss of control of body functions.
  7. 7. specific symptoms include :Symptoms that may be specific to the location of the tumor include: •Pressure or headache near the tumor. •Loss of balance and difficulty with fine motor skills (linked with a tumor in the cerebellum). •Changes in judgment, including loss of initiative, sluggishness, and muscle weakness or paralysis (associated with a tumor in the frontal lobe of the cerebrum). •Partial or complete loss of vision (caused by a tumor in the occipital lobe or temporal lobe of the cerebrum). •Changes in speech, hearing, memory, or emotional state, such as aggressiveness and problems understanding or retrieving words (from a tumor in the frontal and temporal lobe of cerebrum).
  8. 8. Brain tumor-
  9. 9. Diagnosis-: Doctors use many tests to diagnose a brain tumor, find out the type of brain tumor, and rarely, find out if it has metastasized (spread). Some tests may also determine which treatments may be the most effective. For most types of tumors, taking a sample of the tumor tissue, either by biopsy (see below) or by removing the entire tumor, is the only way to make a definitive diagnosis of a brain tumor. If this is not possible, the doctor may suggest other tests that will help make a diagnosis. Imaging tests may be used to help determine whether the tumor is a primary brain tumor or if it is another type of cancer that has spread to the brain from elsewhere in the body. Your doctor may consider these factors when choosing a diagnostic test: •Age and medical condition •Type of tumor suspected •Signs and symptoms •Previous test results
  10. 10. treatment-: Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy (each described below). For a benign brain tumor, surgery may be the only treatment needed. Typically, treatment begins with surgery, followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy if needed. In many situations, chemotherapy is given at the same time as radiation therapy. Occasionally, chemotherapy may be given before the radiation therapy. Your exact treatment plan will be made by your health care team.
  11. 11. Guidemytreatment:- Many clinical trials are focused on new treatments, evaluating whether a new treatment is safe, effective, and possibly better than the current (standard) treatment. These types of studies evaluate new drugs, different combinations of existing treatments, new approaches to radiation therapy or surgery, and new methods of treatment. Guidemytreatment is one of the best free health care where patients who participate in clinical trials are often among the first to receive new treatments before they are widely available. You can appoint your doctor without visiting them and it is free of cost. While you can discuss all your problem regarding health and they advice you the best treatment.
  12. 12. Question to ask the doctor:•What type of brain tumor do I have? •Is the tumor cancerous? •What is the tumor’s grade? What does this mean? •Can you explain my pathology report (laboratory test results) to me? •Will an experienced neuropathology review my pathology slides? •What are my treatment options? •What clinical trials are open to me? •How many brain tumors do you treat each year? •What treatment plan do you recommend? Why? •What is the goal of each treatment? Is it to eliminate the tumor, help me feel better, or both? •Would any of these treatment options keep me from participating in a clinical trial in the future? •When should I start treatment?
