Detecting Brain Tumors Early Can Be the Key to Surviving Them
Wednesday, August 1, 2018


One of the major improvements in the last few decades in the medical field and in the field of neurosurgery specifically is the improved diagnostic tools. State of the art technology and high tech imaging machines used to observe the inside of the patients with a lot of precision and details.

The Improved Technology

With superior imaging machines like PET scans, Ultrasound imaging, MRIs and CT scans producing better results and clearer images thanks to advancing technology that has incorporated computers and improved scanning techniques. Doctors can now more accurately and easily detect and diagnose all sorts of spinal and brain issues.

Patients do not have to undergo painful surgeries for diagnosis and exploration. Imaging tests have become more accessible and are now part of the routine tests to rule out any issues after someone has had a head injury or concussion, or when someone complains about pains in the head or the back that are unresponsive to medication.

Detecting Brain Tumors

Thanks to improved and increased imaging tests, it has been observed that more brain tumors are being detected at earlier stages. More often than not these discoveries are “accidental”, when patients are being scanned for hemorrhages or other damage after a head injury. Athletes and other professionals often undergo these scans when they have had a head injury, or for drivers and passengers who had been in a car accident.

After this accidental discovery of the small tumors in the brain, doctors and patients have to face the dilemma of whether to ignore the small and most likely benign tumor or have it removed to avert any serious issue from developing due to the tumor.

The unsuspecting patients are mostly distressed and overwhelmed after this incidental diagnosis of brain tumor. It can be difficult to take in the news especially when you have no symptoms. But this diagnosis can be counted as a blessing as the doctors can now take the right course of action to handle the brain tumor before it started to show any detrimental effects on the patient.

The Expert Recommendation

The doctors will usually discuss the findings with a board of doctors to decide the best possible treatment; whether to proceed with the surgery to remove the tumor, or to not go with the surgery and treat the tumor with nonsurgical treatment. The doctors would suggest surgery only when it is absolutely necessary.

This ability to detect and treat brain tumors before they become seriously threatening is a very important way to save lives. In severe cases brain tumors can advance in to Glioblastoma Multiforme which is a fatal disease, so early detection can be considered a blessing and resulting in saving a life.

The experienced and highly qualified doctors at Advanced Neurosurgery Inc with their state of the art technology are capable of providing and all round treatment for spinal, brain and other neurological disorders.
