Impact Of Head Injury On Brain Tumors?
Good morning doctor, I want to ask if when the head is sprained or an injury can cause a brain tumor? Are there drugs that are taken for a brain tumor? Thank you so much for your help
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A brain tumor is a condition where there is an abnormal growth of cells in the brain and surrounding supporting structures. This condition can affect anyone at any age, but is more common in adults. Symptoms experienced by people with brain tumors range from mild headaches to decreased consciousness to coma. This will depend on the size of the tumor and the area affected.
Regarding your question, the cause of the brain tumor condition is still unknown. Often there are many continuous factors that trigger the appearance of a brain tumor, including:
Old age Exposure to radiation Smoking. Family history of malignancy Genetic mutations
Of course, what must be understood is that the factors above only increase the risk, and it is not necessarily that people who have these factors will experience a brain tumor. So regarding your question, it can't be said that the cause of the brain tumor is sprains or a history of injury. The handling can also vary depending on the severity level earlier.
Our advice, if you experience something that you think points to a brain tumor, you should first check with a general practitioner because diagnosing a tumor is not simple. Supporting examinations such as X-rays and biopsy are needed to determine the type and severity, which will determine the type of treatment. If indeed your GP thinks there is a tendency to a brain tumor, you will be referred to a specialist surgeon. So, hopefully it answers your question.
