Hello .. doctor, I want to ask. My mother could not see .. And after Cyty Schen was hit by a benign tumor on the back of the forehead, was it a brain tumor …? N n nAnd can it be operated so that the vision can return to normal ….
The tumor is a mass in the body. There are many types of tumors on the head, one of which is a brain tumor. Brain tumors are also divided into several types based on the location of their growth. Brain tumors are abnormal cell growths in or around brain organs.
Symptoms of a brain tumor vary depending on the location of the tumor growth. Some of the symptoms of a brain tumor include dizziness, seizures, easy drowsiness, hallucinations, changes in character, difficulty speaking, balance disorders, hearing loss, movement of hands and feet, and vision problems.
If the tumor is in the occipital lobe of the brain, vision loss can occur on one side. If there is visual disturbance on both sides of the eye, it is possible that the tumor is pressing on the nerve crossing of the eye. Visual disturbances due to this tumor can be reversible or irreversible (can not be returned to normal again). This depends on the size of the tumor, the location of the tumor, the duration of the disease, the therapy and surgery performed, and the condition of the patient's body. If blindness occurs, the possibility of vision cannot return to normal.
Treatment of brain tumors itself can be with surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, radiosurgery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. The type of treatment given is of course adjusted to the condition of each patient.
I suggest that you bring the CT scan results to the doctor who is treating your mother at this time. The doctor will re-evaluate the CT scan results, physical examination results, and also the history that has been done. Furthermore, your mother will be given proper treatment by the doctor. The likelihood of recovery and return of vision depends on the results of the current examination as well as the treatment given.
