brain tumor treatment

Why Brain is the most important organ in the nervous system?

The brain is the most important organ in the human body.It controls all functions in the central nervous system. and regulates physiological functioning and organs. Beyond its main function in maintaining bodily functions, the brain does cognitive functions like thinking, memory, reasoning, and problem-solving.

Emotional, sensory, and reflexive control are also governed by the human brain only, to allow human body to interact with world. It ensures the flow of information between different parts of the nervous system.

Neurological disorders badly affect the brain’s structure and function especially strokes, or tumors

What is Brain Tumor?

Neurosurgeon in Delhi explains that any abnormal growth of cells in or around the brain is called a brain tumour. These cells can be non-cancerous or cancerous. This growth is a result of impaired functioning of the nervous system and immunity system that regulate cell growth. Benign or non-cancerous tumours grow slowly and are mostly localised, posing a less immediate threat to tissues. Malignant or cancerous tumors, multiply, affecting tissues, and spread to other parts of the brain or the central nervous system.

Primary brain tumours originate in the brain itself, while secondary or metastatic brain tumours result from cancer that has spread from other parts of the body to the brain.

As per Dr. Nagesh Chandra, the most succesful approach for brain tumor treatment involves the following:

  • Brain Tumor Biopsy in Delhi: Brain Tumor Biopsy procedures provide the details about the presence of brain tumors and its magnitude. Molecular analysis helps identify genetic markers and mutations and treatment decisions. It assists in deciding the medicines too.
  • Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy eliminates cancer cells. Stereotactic radiosurgery and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) doses of radiation are provided while minimizing exposure to healthy tissues.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses powerful drugs to kill cancer cells. Administered through intravenous infusion or oral intake, chemotherapy impacts the cell cycle, hindering cancer cell growth.
  • Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy improves the body’s immune system and fights with cancer cells. It involves stimulating the immune system or providing substances that enhance its natural ability to identify and destroy cancer cells.

Types of Brain tumor

Primary Central Nervous System Lymphomas

Primary Central Nervous System Lymphomas (PCNSL) are rare cancers that originate in the lymphocytes of the brain or spinal cord


Meningiomas tumor cells originates from the layers covering the brain and spinal cord. Most of these tumors are slow-growing and not cancerous. Meningiomas cause headaches, seizures, or vision changes.


Medulloblastomas are fast-growing tumors that affect the cerebellum, the part of the brain responsible for coordination and balance, especially in children. These tumors are considered embryonal tumors and are malignant brain tumors in pediatric patients. Symptoms often include problems with balance, headaches, nausea, and changes in behavior.


Gliomas are brain tumour that originates from glial cells, which are supportive cells that surround and provide nourishment to nerve cells in the brain. The three main subtypes of gliomas are Oligodendrogliomas, Astrocytomas, Ependymomas


Craniopharyngiomas develop near the pituitary gland, affecting both children and adults. These tumors are benign and cause health issues due to their growth near critical brain structures.

Pineal Gland Tumors

Tumors in the pineal gland, a small structure in the brain that produces melatonin, can include pineocytomas and pineoblastomas.


Schwannomas tumors originates from Schwann cells which produce the protective covering (myelin) for nerves. Vestibular schwannomas, specifically, occur on the vestibular nerve, connects inner ear to the brain. While usually slow-growing, these tumors causes hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance issues.

Pituitary Tumors

Pituitary tumors as the name suggests originate from pituitary gland, a small gland located at the base of the brain. Most pituitary tumours are non-cancerous and can cause hormonal imbalances.


Affects the pineal or suprasellar regions, and germinomas are tumors that usually occur in children and adolescents.

Brain Tumor Surgery

Neurosurgeons go for brain tumor surgery types after knowing the exact detail about tumor location, magnitude etc. Different types of brain tumor surgery like open craniotomies, involving the removal of a portion of the skull, Minimally invasive cancer surgery for brain tumor includes endoscopic and stereotactic techniques, reduce trauma and enhance recovery.

Consult Dr. Nagesh Chandra? Top neurosurgeon in Dwarka, Delhi

Dr Nagesh’s focuses on slow-growing tumors and watchful waiting approach is adopted to decide on the need for surgery. Regular monitoring through imaging studies allows neurosurgeons to assess tumor growth and determine treatment strategies. His supportive care, including symptom relief and rehabilitation, helps the patients to get overall healing in less time.
