Kranatomi Surgery / Removal Of Benign Tumors On The Head?
Good night … on Thursday, May 16, 2019, I performed a surgery to remove a benign tumor on the head … I want to ask when the tumor was removed when cutting the skull? And what’s done, my skull bones were left blank or what? That’s my question..thank you
Hello Daniel, thank you for asking.
You should clarify again, what type of tumor you mean. Is the tumor in the head or in the brain? Because a 'head tumor' is not the same as a brain tumor. If you mean a benign tumor in the brain, then the action depends on the findings of a physical examination by the treating doctor. The doctor will perform imaging (CT-scan or MRI) to determine the location and size of the tumor. Tumors that are possible to reach are likely to be taken completely.
The type of surgery depends on the type, location, size and number of tumors, and your general condition. We don't know what type of surgery your surgeon is doing. If the surgeon performs a craniotomy, a hole in the skull will be created, as a way to remove the tumor. After the tumor is removed and the brain is in good condition, the skull fragment will be returned to its original position using bone wax or other attachment methods. If your doctor performs a craniectomy, then the cut of the skull taken to make a hole will not be returned to its original position. The brain will then be closed using the lining of the brain, as well as the tissue above it.
Please ask your doctor, what method is used. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully enough help. Regards.
