    Cancer prevention and screening
    Pediatric Neurosurgery focuses on the issues concerning the development and maturation of the nervous system and the disease affecting the nervous system in children.
    There is a normal variation in achieving milestones in different children who are otherwise normal. Hence there is a need to detect the "abnormal from the normal" early, so that appropriate investigations can be done early for the cause and treatment/interventions can be expedited.
    Developmental screening is a procedure designed to identify those children should receive more intensive assessment for detecting potential development delays
    Birth defects are abnormalities of structure or function or metabolism (body chemistry) present at birth (congenital) that results in physical or mental disability.

    Symptoms due to brain tumors in children are usually due to pressure on nearby structures or blockage of normal flow of fluids through the brain. These symptoms include:

    • Headache
    • Dizziness
    • Nausea and Vomiting
    • Weakness or lack of co-ordination
    • Seizures and visual changes

    The presence of brain tumor is suspected when the child undergoes a detailed neurological examination of a doctor. This is confirmed by scanning techniques like Computed Tomography (CT Scan) And Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI).
