About Brain CancerAbout Brain Cancer

Brain cancers are as a result of abnormal growth of cells in brain. These cancers can arise from typical brain cells, cells from other brain parts like blood vessels and membranes, or cancer cells developing in other tissues and organs then spreading to the brain through metastatic.

Glioblastoma multiforme is a type of brain cancer that is seen to be growing fast and very aggressive. This type of tumor affects the central nervous system and forms on the brain’s supportive tissue.

Glioblastoma develops mainly in the temporal and frontal lobes of the brain. Its symptoms vary based on the location of the cancerous tumor, but they include; vomiting, nausea, persistent headaches, new onset of seizures, memory loss, and speech difficulty.

This is a small non-cancerous (benign) growth that may occur on the skin and other parts of the body. On the skin, it develops on the squamous cells or the thin, flat cells found in skin surface tissue, also known as the epidermis.

The growths may also form on the digestive tract, respiratory tract, and in the lining of hollow organs. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is believed to be the cause for squamous papilloma. When these growths occur on skin, they are referred to as verrucas or warts and when they occur on genital tract, they are referred to as genital warts.

Often, the growths don’t cause pain, but they can remain present for a long period. A patient may experience symptoms like dysphagia coupled with difficult in swallowing in situations where the tumors have enlarged, are abnormal, and are affecting body parts like the throat.

Cancer of the jaws manifests in the form of local bone destruction occurring due to uncontrolled tumor growth. Jaw cancer may be characterized by pain that is persistent and increasing in intensity as the growth advances. A patient may have pain that radiates to other parts like the neck or face if the growth is occurring near a facial nerve.

Cancer of the throat may be classified as pharyngeal and laryngeal cancer. Although they are pretty uncommon, when an individual suspects to have throat cancer, they should seek immediate medical help.

Squamous cell carcinoma is a primary type of cancer of the throat and it occurs on the flat cells that line the throat. Adenocarcinoma is a type of laryngeal cancer that affects the glandular cells. Symptoms of cancer of the throat include; trouble swallowing, coughing up blood, and having swollen lymph nodes.
