About this section


MedlinePlus:32 A brain tumor is a growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain. brain tumors can be benign, with no cancer cells, or malignant, with cancer cells that grow quickly. some are primary brain tumors, which start in the brain. others are metastatic, and they start somewhere else in the body and move to the brain. brain tumors can cause many symptoms. some of the most common are headaches, often in the morning nausea and vomiting changes in your ability to talk, hear, or see problems with balance or walking problems with thinking or memory feeling weak or sleepy changes in your mood or behavior seizures doctors diagnose brain tumors by doing a neurologic exam and tests including an mri, ct scan, and biopsy. treatment options include watchful waiting, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy. targeted therapy uses substances that attack cancer cells without harming normal cells. many people get a combination of treatments. nih: national cancer institute

MalaCards based summary: Brain Cancer, also known as adult brain tumor, is related to gliosarcoma and glioblastoma. An important gene associated with Brain Cancer is IL13 (interleukin 13), and among its related pathways are AHR Pathway and Akt Signaling Pathway. The drugs carmustine and interferon alfa-2a and the compounds pki-166 and zd6474 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and breast.

Disease Ontology:9 A central nervous system cancer that is characterized by the growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain.

Wikipedia:63 A brain tumor or intracranial neoplasm occurs when abnormal cells form within the brain. There are two... more...
