A brain tumor is a condition where there is an abnormal protrusion. Tumors themselves can be benign or malignant. so if it is said to be a brain tumor, it is not necessarily malignant. To find out if the tumor is malignant or benign, further tests are needed, such as a CT scan / MRI, or perhaps a biopsy.
Glioma is a tumor that occurs in the brain or brain stem. Glioma comes from the growth of brain cells. gliomas are usually malignant. Glioma itself consists of several types. Glioma can cause various symptoms depending on the location of the tumor. Glioma can cause symptoms such as:
out of breath
from the situation you are experiencing, feeling short of breath, headache and cold sweat may be a symptom caused by the glioma you have.
But besides that, the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
there is metastasis / spread of the tumor to the chest area
kelianan heart valve
Therefore, it is recommended that you check with a neurologist first, so that the doctor can check your condition directly, and can provide the right therapy for you.
