The mere fact that you have brain surgery does go on to strike fear in the minds of each one of us. Once upon a time it was rated to be one of the most fearful events that could ever take place. In fact the treatment is difficult because of the nature and location of the tumours.

Brain cancer starts when there is growth of abnormal cells in the brain. The cancer does occur when abnormal cells grow in the brain. This cancer tends to arise from the primary brain cells or the cells that could arise from the other brain components. Examples would be the blood vessels or the membranes. It could also arise when the cancer cells would have spread to the brain by the blood stream. The malignant tumours work out to be cancerous in nature and do spread in an aggressive manner. The space of the nutrients, blood is occupied.

As far as the symptoms of brain cancer are concerned, you may face difficulty in walking, dizziness, headache or seizers. This could also be accompanied by symptoms of nausea, personality or mental alertness. In fact all these symptoms could also occur in someone who does not have brain cancer, but most of the symptoms in combination could go on to predict a person has brain cancer. The cancer could emerge in any part of the brain. The worst part is that some form of brain cancer produces no form of symptoms at all.
