Brain Tumor occurs when abnormal cells form within the brain. The symptoms of Brain stem tumors vary greatly and can include Ataxia, Cranial Nerve Palsy, headaches, problems with speech and swallowing, hearing loss, weakness, Hemiparesis, vision abnormalities, ptosis, and behavioural changes. Another possible symptom is vomiting. Any brain tumor is inherently serious and life-threatening because of its invasive and infiltrative character in the limited space of the Intracranial Cavity.

A Brainstem glioma is an aggressive and dangerous Cancerous Glioma Tumor in the brainstem which starts in the Brain or Spinal cord tissue and typically spread throughout the Nervous System. It is more diagnosed in children and young adults under the age of twenty. Symptoms of Brainstem glioma can develop slowly and subtly and may go unnoticed for months. A sudden onset of symptoms tends to occur with more rapidly growing, high-grade tumors. In other cases, the symptoms may arise abruptly. Unlike most Brain tumors, Brainstem Glioma is not often treated with Neurosurgery due to complications in vital parts of the Brain. Without treatment, the life expectancy is typically a few months from the time of diagnosis.

Angiogenesis theatrically a critical role in the maturation and spread of cancer, it also plays a major role in the transition of tumor cells from a benign state to a malignant (cancerous), leading to the use of angiogenesis evasion in the treatment of cancer.
Angiogenesis is a vital series that facilitates tumor growth and survival. Angiogenesis is a well-controlled path that is systematize by angiogenic, growth, and survival factors that are secreted by the malignant units as well as other corpuscle within the tumour microenvironment.
The Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology (RANO) Working Group is an international, Multidisciplinary effort to develop new standardized response criteria for Clinical trials in Brain tumors. The Surgery Working Group of RANO identified surgically related End-point evaluation problems that were not addressed in the original Macdonald criteria. Macdonald criteria led to the initiation of an International effort in Neurooncology to develop Novel Response and Progression Assessment Criteria.

In low-grade Gliomas, stereotactically guided conformal Radiotherapy should lead to a significant reduction in Radiation-associated late toxicity, while in selected groups of high-grade Gliomas the use of adjuvant or Neo-adjuvant Chemotherapy may improve survival. In primitive Neuroectodermal Tumours Prognostic Biological markers have been identified that are undergoing prospective evaluation. In infants the use of post-surgical chemotherapy alone may allow the postponing of Radiotherapy in selected cases. For patients with localized Medulloblastomas a new standard treatment is emerging that uses reduced-dose Craniospinal Radiotherapy followed by Platinum-based chemotherapy, while in Supratentorial primitive Neuroectodermal tumours future treatment will be aimed at improving local control.

The upcoming implementation of a Neurosurgical ablation device that provides controlled therapy for brain lesions those are difficult to reach and treat. Thistool,will allow us to introduce the probe into the tumor and destroy it without having to perform a Surgical Operation or Craniotomy.Recent advances have made treatment for brain tumors much safer and more successful. Some of these newer.
•Antiseizure/Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs)
•Surgery: The goal of surgery in the treatment of metastasis is to maximally remove tumor while leaving patients with good function
•Radiosurgery: A non-invasive technique that delivers numerous narrow, precisely aimed, highly focused beams of ionizing radiation that converge at a specific point.
•Radiation therapy: X-rays and other forms of radiation can destroy tumor cells or delay tumor growth.
•Chemotherapy: The use of drugs to kill rapidly dividing cells. It can be taken orally or intravenously.
•Targeted therapy: The focus on a specific element of a cell, such as molecules or pathways required for cell growth, in order to use them as a target.

The following are the steps involved in Brain Tumor Diagnosis:
•A neurological exam: A neurological exam may include, among other things, checking your vision, hearing, balance, coordination, strength and reflexes. Difficulty in one or more areas may provide clues about the part of your brain that could be affected by a brain tumor
•Imaging tests: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is commonly used to help diagnose brain tumors. In some cases a dye may be injected through a vein in your arm during your MRI study.
A number of specialized MRI scan components — including functional MRI, perfusion MRI and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.
Other imaging tests may include Computerized Tomography (CT) scan and Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
•Tests to find cancer in other parts of your body: If it's suspected that your Brain tumor may be a result of Cancer that has spread from another area of your body, your doctor may recommend tests and procedures to determine where the cancer originated. One example might be a CT scan of the chest to look for signs of Lung Cancer.
•Collecting and testing a sample of abnormal tissue (biopsy): A Biopsy can be performed as part of an operation to remove the Brain tumor, or a Biopsy can be performed using a needle.A stereotactic needle biopsy may be done for brain tumors in hard to reach areas or very sensitive areas within your brain that might be damaged by a more extensive operation. Your Neurosurgeon drills a small hole into your skull. A thin needle is then inserted through the hole. Tissue is removed using the needle, which is frequently guided by CT or MRI scanning.
•The Biopsy sample is then viewed under a microscope to determine if it is cancerous or benign. This information is critical to establish a diagnosis and prognosis and, most importantly, in guiding treatment.

Pediatric neurooncology encompasses a wide-variety of areas Pediatric neurosurgeons are quite completely different from those ordinarily seen by general neurosurgeons. Because Pediatric neurosurgical issues often are present for life, children with nervous system problems frequently require close, on-going follow-up from childhood - sometimes as early as the new-born period - through the teenage years.
Neurosurgery is one in all the newer surgical disciplines to develop, originally gaining recognition in the early 1900s. However, it's currently one in all the foremost leading edge medical disciplines within the world of science and drugs and involves the utilization of a number of the foremost advanced technologies presently offered.
These areas include: developmental, contextual, and psychosocial factors that can contribute to Pediatric psychological and physical issues. It additionally includes: the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of Pediatric medical conditions, prevention of Pediatric medical conditions (physical and psychological), educating the general population on Pediatric health, promoting health-related behaviours, advocating for child and family public policies, and improving Pediatric healthcare delivery services.

Neuropathology is the dissertation of contagion of nervous system tissue, usually in the form of either small surgical biopsies or whole autopsies. Neuropathology is a sub long-suit of anatomic pathology, neurology, and neurosurgery.Work of the neuropathologist consists predominantly, of largely of examining biopsy tissue from the brain andspinal cord to aid in interpretation of disease. The biopsy is usually requested after a mass is detected by radiologic imaging. As for autopsies, the principal drudgery, of the neuropathologist is to help in the post-mortem diagnosis of various forms of dementia and other affliction that affect the central affect the central nervous system.
