Advanced Brain Cancer?
Hello, I have an advanced stage of cancer can I still survive how many years I have been answered
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cancer is a term for abnormal, excessive, and uncontrolled cell growth in the body which is malignant. This cancer can occur in various organ systems, including in the brain. Symptoms that arise due to brain cancer can vary, depending on the size, location, and speed of growth of the cancer. But generally, sufferers will complain of the following symptoms:
Recurrent headaches that get worse and don't go away Nausea and vomiting for no apparent reason Impaired vision, such as blurry, shading, or narrowed visual fields Reduced sensation or movement of the organs Impaired balance Impaired speech and hearing Confusion, dazedness, memory problems , behavior, and personality seizures, etc. In general, brain cancer can be categorized into 2, namely:
Primary brain cancer, which is cancer that appears in the brain, for example meduloblastoma Secondary brain cancer, which is cancer that spreads to the brain from its original organ (metastasis), for example from the breast, colon, kidney, lung, skin, or other organs respectively The types of brain cancer above have a different prognosis (possibility of recovery), depending on the type, stage, treatment carried out, and also the patient's overall health condition. If it is true that your brain cancer has reached an advanced stage, we have to say with a heavy heart that the prognosis of this disease is generally poor (5 years survival rate ranges from less than 10% to 32%) even though it has received treatment, such as surgery, radiation. , also chemotherapy.
However, given the very limited information you provide regarding the condition of your illness, we strongly urge you to consult directly with a neurosurgeon for further explanation.
Hope this helps ..
