World Brain Tumor Day 2016

8th June is the official World Brain Tumor Day across the globe. This day is celebrated to make people become aware of the detrimental risk of brain tumor.

Brain tumors are not very common in Pakistan but still, their rate is noticeable and it is growing day by day. Brain tumors are generally caused when a child is exposed to X-Ray radiations a lot. Genetic value does not play a role in causing brain tumor as, if a father or a mother has it, they cannot genetically transfer it to the child.

Some of the most common symptoms of brain tumors are problems in clear vision, headaches, stroke, epilepsy, drowsiness and personality changes. If brain tumors are left undiagnosed at an early stage, they may lead to the comatose condition. Today, brain tumors can be easily diagnosed through the help of contrast CT scan of Brain, which is very commonly available in all the hospitals of Pakistan.

Once doctors doubt the existence of brain tumor in a patient’s body, they may suggest for an MRI scan of brain in order to have clearer details regarding tumor location, size and exact connection with the blood vessels and other parts of the brain, which may affect face, legs, arm, speech, etc.

Despite all this information, what common people need to learn is the fact that there are 100 different types of brain tumors but not all of them are deadly or cancerous. Even if they are, they can be effectively treated.
