Treatment Of Tumors In The Head?
Hello, I want to ask you … my parents are now skit a tumor in the head and we have checked it into a skit … Is that a very dangerous condition, we are very difficult as a family, besides surgery, is there another way … What is the effect of the operation? dangerous or ill … How much is the cure for the tumor on the head … Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Tumors, including those located on the head, some are benign, some are dangerous. There are tumors on the head that are primarily derived from tissue in the head, but can also appear secondary to metastasis (spread) of tumors in other organs, such as lung, breast, skin, kidney, or colon.
Some types of tumors that often occur in the head area include astrocytomas, meningiomas, oligodendrogliomas, acoustic neuromas, chordomas, lymphomas, craniopharynomas, ependymomas, meduloblastomas, pituitary tumors, schwannomas, and so on.
The danger or not the tumor on the head, such as what treatment needs to be done to overcome this tumor, whether surgery must be done, and how much the potential for recovery from this tumor after treatment, the answer can certainly vary depending on the type, location, and stage of the tumor. Therefore, the doctor, neurosurgeon, or oncology surgeon who takes care of your parents is the one who knows this best. It is better if you consult this matter directly with him ..
I hope this helps.
