Brain tumors information and locations in Mexico

Brain tumors are an abnormal growth of cells in the brain. These growths can be non-cancerous and cancerous. Early detection of tumors can increase the chances of successful treatment.
Surgery is the first treatment option for most brain tumors. Neurosurgeons focus on removing as much as possible of the tumor without affecting the normal function of the neurological system. Some patients in addition to surgery might need chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Most common types of surgery for brain tumors

Craniotomy
During this type of surgery, neurosurgeons remove a section of the skull to access the tumor. Depending on the stage and location, the craniotomy can be performed while the patient is awake to avoid damage to the brain.
Neuroendoscopy
During this minimally invasive surgery, neurosurgeons introduce an endoscope (small camera) through the mouth or nose or a small incision made on the skull.

You will have some medical tests done days before your surgery. Neurosurgeons recommend you to stop eating at least 12 hours before surgery and will discuss with you if you need to take medications to reduce swelling and pressure on the brain.
What will recovery be like?
Recovery tends to take longer when compared to other surgeries, as it can cause weakness, speech problems, loss of balance, and emotional changes. Various types of rehabilitation will be recommended, along with psychotherapy.
