Are The Results Of The Micro Lab Can Find Out Treatments For Brain Tumors?
Tonight Doctor, I want to ask whether the correct Micro laboratory tests (blood, sputum u0026amp; tumor) can diagnose the treatment suffered by my parents (Bpk), since the month of 11 th 2018 has done major head surgery (brain tumor). Currently my treatment is still floating because my lab results have not yet come out. which determines the treatment (whether in radiology or chemotherapy), please explain Dook … I thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
Brain tumors consist of various types depending on the origin of the tumor cells, including:
1. Meningioma (derived from meninges membrane)
2. Hemangioblastoma (derived from blood vessels)
3. Astrocytoma (derived from supporting cells in the brain)
4. Oligodendroglioma (derived from oligodendrocyte cells)
5. Ependymoma (derived from ependimal cells)
After the tumor tissue is removed through a surgical procedure, the tissue is then taken to the anatomic pathology laboratory. The tumor cell types, tumor cell types and tumor cell differentiation have been observed to obtain a final diagnosis. If a final diagnosis has been found, the treating doctor will be able to determine a specific and directed treatment plan. Then a complete blood count, renal function tests, urea and electrolyte tests, and tumor marker tests can also be done. Besides treatment, if the diagnosis is known, the doctor can also consider the outcome or prognosis of the disease based on the latest medical research.
While waiting for these results, the patient will generally be treated conservatively to maintain the general condition remains good and stable and prepare for treatment plans thereafter.
That's all, hope you can help
