Brain Cancer Treatment

The brain is a unique organ, enabling complex cognition and reflexes. Being diagnosed with brain cancer can be quite frightful and debilitating. Brain cancer treatment, including brain surgery, is a delicate process, which requires skills of the highest order.

Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) procedure can be an effective form of treatment for certain kinds of cancer, especially blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. A stem cell transplant may also be used to treat certain genetic conditions and some noncancerous blood diseases. Cytecare provides the best bone marrow transplant and has a dedicated team of experts to provide information and support to you before, during and after the transplant.

Brain Cancer

The brain is a unique organ, enabling complex cognition and reflexes. Being diagnosed with brain cancer can be quite frightful and debilitating. Brain cancer treatment, including brain surgery, is a delicate process, which requires skills of the highest order.

The dedicated neuro-oncology speciality team at Cytecare consists of specialists with dedicated years of clinical experience in treating cancers of the Central Nervous System (Brain and Spine). There are over 120 types of CNS cancers and we have the expertise, in terms of clinical knowledge, infrastructure and specialised resources, to treat all of them. Not all tumours found in the brain or in the spine are cancerous but skillful management of brain tumours renders superior results in brain cancers.

At the Neuro-oncology speciality at Cytecare, we are equipped with the most advanced diagnostics treatment for brain cancer and support centre for:

  • Brain and central nervous system cancers
  • Neurological complication from cancer treatment of other cancers
  • Peripheral nervous system conditions that may affect patients with cancer
  • Metastatic brain tumours

Brain Cancer Prevention & Screening

Not all tumours of the brain are the same. There may be variations, depending on the size, aggressiveness, location and growth of the tumours, causing corresponding variations in the signs and symptoms of the brain tumours . One must always be aware of the family's medical history, including the cases of cancers and brain tumors. A history of genetic syndromes that may cause brain cancer must be taken seriously and communicated to one's doctor. For instance, a family history of Li-Fraumeni syndrome, neurofibromatosis, tuberous sclerosis, and Turcot syndrome can increase the chances of brain cancer. Understanding these threats of brain tumor can make all the difference, by helping identify the brain tumours at an early stage.

Although there are many symptoms of brain tumor that may appear, it is important to get oneself screened if the following symptoms appear:

  • Seizures
  • Frequent headaches of increased severity, commonly accompanied by vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of memory & vision
    • Ignoring these brain cancer symptoms can be especially detrimental if they persist for over a month. Ignoring the signs and/or avoiding treatment for brain tumor can worsen the situation. In such a scenario, it is important to visit a Neurologist, Neurosurgeon or General Physician, at the earliest. Brain Cancers can be best managed with timely detection.

Brain Cancer Diagnosis

Cytecare performs a wide variety of neuro-radiology procedures to facilitate diagnosis and treatment of brain cancers as well as brain cancer related neurological issues. Some of these brain tumour diagnosis procedures are-

  • CT/MRI/PET Imaging of brain & spine
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Transcranial Doppler
  • Carotid ultrasound
  • Interventional angiography that includes stenting, thrombolysis, sinus sampling
  • Image-guided percutaneous biopsy
  • Vertebroplasty

Brain Cancer Treatment

Management of brain tumours, and specifically cancers, requires a multidisciplinary approach, involving a neurosurgeon, neurologist, radiologist and oncologist. Cytecare also offers pre- and post-surgical counselling for patients and their relatives, paramount in having a meaningful brain tumor treatment outcome. Brain Tumour treatment requires extreme planning and coordination among specialists. The outcome of brain cancer treatment is dependent on several factors, such as the grade of the tumour, location, age of the patient, general physical condition of the patient etc. Therefore we consider each case unique, and build a cancer treatment plan in cohesion with available clinical research data to ensure the best outcome both in terms of survival and quality of life.

Cytecare provides comprehensive and advanced clinical services for tumours like glioma, low grade astrocytoma, high grade astrocytoma (Glioblastoma), meningioma, pituitary adenoma, ependymoma, nerve sheath tumours, primary spinal cord tumours, which is prevalent in adults and ependymoma, low grade astrocytoma, high grade astrocytoma (Glioblastoma), and medulloblastoma, which are predominantly seen in paediatric cases.

Neurosurgery: The best outcome in brain surgery is largely dependent on maximal brain tumour removal. Our neurosurgery services cover both primary as well as metastatic brain tumours. Our focus is to remove the tumour completely or as much as possible, with a parallel goal of preserving maximum neurological function. We use the most advanced techniques, sophisticated tools and state-of-the-art technology to perform brain surgery. Post-surgical tumour removal, depending on the biopsy report regarding the type of tumour, adjuvant chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy is administered after recommendation of the tumour board.
