Hi my name is Eudocia Quant Lee, I'm a senior physician
in the Center for Neuro-Oncology at
Dana-Farber Brigham/Women's Cancer Center
A brain tumor is a tumor that either arises in the brain
or it can be a tumor that spreads from a different part of your body
such as a brain metastasis from breast cancer.
Overall, malignant brain tumors are rare
there's less than a one percent chance that an average adult will
develop a malignant brain tumor in their lifetime.
It's comprised of abnormal cells that shouldn't be
in the brain, and they form a mass.
Brain tumors can range from benign, or non-cancerous tumors,
to malignant, or cancerous, tumors.
Brain tumors are typically found on imaging studies.
Some more aggressive tumors can have a lot of
swelling associated with them.
Other kinds of tumors may be slower growing or maybe not as obvious.
Sometimes we need to follow those patients overtime
to really distinguish a brain tumor from some other
abnormality that can appear in the brain.
The signs and symptoms attributed to the brain tumor
can depend on the location and the number
of lesions in the brain.
For example, if you have a brain tumor in the speech
area of your brain, you might present with difficulty
speaking or understanding language.
Sometimes patients can present in a non-specific way,
meaning they develop symptoms that can be seen
even in normal people.
For example, you can have a headache that doesn't
seem to go away, that wakes you up in the morning
it can be associated with nausea and vomiting.
You can also have confusion,
or other focal neurologic deficits
It's important to note that because many
of the symptoms of brain tumors are non-specific,
just because you have one of these symptoms
doesn't mean you have a brain tumor.
However, if your symptoms are not resolving
or are not explained by anything else,
it's important to see your doctor for these symptoms.
