        <p>In simple terms, brain cancer can be defined as an
uncontrolled or abnormal growth of cells, which over a period of time,
form into a lump in or around the brain. This <strong><a rel="nofollow"

brain</a></strong> or brain tumor, results in an intense degree of pain
and suffering in its patients. Basically, there are two types of brain
cancer: Primary and secondary. Brain cancers have a high potential of
turning fatal. Among the most deadly form of brain cancer is glioblastoma
multiforme as it is incurable. Brain cancer symptoms often resemble signs
displayed in other common diseases and therefore are very evasive and
confusing to detect. This is simply because a wide range of problems like
headaches, seizures, abnormal vision, vomiting, neck pains and even
stomach problems are potential brain tumor symptoms. This may be a prime
reason as to why some experts do not agree towards a common list of
symptoms of this disease.</p>
<p>It is also important to remember that not all brain tumors cause
symptoms. Sometimes, tumors (an abnormal mass of tissue) from other parts
of the body infect the brain, while there are tumors which form inside
the brain itself. Brain cancer is a degenerative disease and requires
repetitive and aggressive treatment such as surgery. Modern science has
also made considerable progress in development of medications, methods,
and diagnosis for brain cancer. As of now, surgery is sought after as the
major cure for brain cancer. Researchers and scientists have made good
progress in developing various medications and tools for treatment of
this deadly disease. A brain tumor relates to all types of tumors in and
around the brain.</p>
<p>There are <strong><a rel="nofollow"

href="http://www.makehealtheasy.com/brain-cancer.html">two types of brain
cancer</a></strong> : Primary brain cancer and Secondary brain cancer.
Primary brain cancer is limited to the central nervous system; it rarely
spreads outside the brain. A person affected thus can die from the
uncontrolled growth of a tumor in brain. These types of tumors can be
both cancerous as well as noncancerous and can cause serious
complications or even severe symptoms like loss of hearing or vision.
Secondary brain cancer is caused by cancerous cells from tumors that
reside in other parts of the body. These cancerous cells spread to the
brain through a process called metastasis. A classic example of brain
cancer spreading to the brain from another site in the body is prostate
cancer. This type of cancer spreads through formation of secondary tumors
in the liver, from there to the lungs, then to the hips and finally - to
the brain. Research shows that about twenty five percent of tumors in our
body find their way into the brain, causing brain tumor in the process.
Among <strong><a rel="nofollow"

href="http://www.makehealtheasy.com/brain-cancer.html">cure for brain
cancer </a></strong> options, the treatments may include surgery,
radiation and chemotherapy.</p>
<p>Majority of the patients suffering from brain cancer are advised first
and foremost to undergo surgery, as surgical intervention is considered
to be safer than the other forms of invasive treatments. Radiation
involves use of high-energy rays that destroy cancerous cells in the
tumor. This prevents tumors from multiplying further and thus putting a
stop to its further growth. Treatments involving chemotherapy are carried
out by introducing toxic substances that attack cancerous cell
formations. A single drug or a mixture of different drugs are
administered orally or injected into the body, depending on the type and
severity of the disease. People with brain cancer symptoms often suffer
physically and psychologically and as such are deprived of a normal
quality of life. But a proper line of treatment can help in reducing the
miseries faced by the patients as well as the families of those
affected.</p>        <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
