Adding to these woes, more than 2 million Nigerians are supposed to be suffering from some type of invasive cancer. Cancer is the number one cause of deaths in Nigeria.

What are Brain Tumors?

Brain tumors are defined as a collection of abnormal cells which develop within the brain. Since the skull holding the brain is a rigid structure, any growth within this restricted space increases pressure and causes problems. While brain tumors can be both cancerous and noncancerous, they can cause brain damage and be life-threatening as well. Primary brain tumors are tumors which originate in the brain and secondary brain tumors are masses of cancerous cells which have spread to the brain from some other part of the body through the bloodstream. There are various types of brain tumors affecting people, including gliomas and meningiomas. Other types of primary brain tumors include pituitary tumors, pineal gland tumors, ependymomas, craniopharyngiomas, schwannomas and germ cell tumors of the brain.

 

Pituitary Tumor Surgery Treatment Options

Pituitary tumors are common types of brain tumors affecting people. Pituitary tumor surgery is the most common type of treatment option. Moreover, pituitary tumor surgery may be the only treatment required by a brain tumor patient in case the mass is noncancerous and located in the part of the brain from where it can be completely and safely be removed. Most common types of surgical approaches employed for pituitary tumor surgery include craniotomy, neuroendoscopic surgery and endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery. Of these endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery is the latest and most advanced ideal treatment procedure since the pituitary gland is located just behind the nasal sinuses. Minimally invasive endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery in fact is the best treatment option for removing all types of benign pituitary tumors.
