Who is the best neurosurgeon for brain tumor in India?

  • I am from Srilanka and my mom had an acoustic tumor which originates from the hearing nerves inside brain. I was referred to one Dr Arun L Naik who was in Colombo for a conference. She was eventually operated in Bangalore in 2005 by the same neurosurgeon. She did a remarkable recovery and now is perfectly fine except that her deafness is permanent. I was told before the surgery that hearing will not improve. I would definitely recommend his name to anyone who asks for it. All the very best.

  • Answer: My father did
  • Answer: Any brain tumor is bad, however, it is one of the better ones to have.

    Meningiomas are slow growing tumors of the outside lining of the brain. They usually can be removed and completely cured. Occasionally they are in a location that cannot be completely removed which would be a problem.
  • Answer: If you have to have a brain tumor it is a good one to have. They are slow growing and do not break apart and spread. If they can be cut out then they are generally curable. Sadly, not all of them can be cut out and as they grow they do cause problems.
  • Answer: There are two main ways to die of a brain tumor... (that I can think of off the top of my head) which are: 1) metastasis, 2) brain damage/death.

    Cancer of the brain can break apart and bits can travel to other areas of the body (depending upon which type of brain tumor) and set up camp there... which can just eat away at the body until the body either starves to death in some area, or there is an organ failure of some kind.

    The second way is that a brain tumor encroaches upon an important area of the brain, and so that part of the brain stops functioning... if it is the part that controls the lungs, then the body dies. Also, as the cancer gets bigger it smashes the rest of the brain and any part of the brain can just give up at any time, and then the body dies.
  • Answer: It is not infectious.
  • Answer: Migraines have never been shown to cause brain tumors, however, they may be a symptom of one or some other problem and if persistant, should be checked out by a doctor.
  • Answer: Congenital brain tumors are very rare neoplasms (tumors). Simply it is a generic term for any brain tumor which has existed from birth.
  • Answer: There is know way to tell who was the first person to have a braintumor because most tumors went undetected in the days before x-raysand MRIs. In 1884, Mr. Rickman J. Godlee performed the firstresection of a brain tumor.
  • Answer: From my knowledge, in the UK around 25,000 people under the age of 30 in the world no more than a million
  • Answer: All parts of the brain can be scanned for tumors.
  • Answer: No. Migraines have not been linked to brain tumors.

    Frequent migraines with aura have been shown to be linked with white matter lesions in the brain over time. These lesions are not cancerous. When doctors identify these lesions, they do not recommend chemotherapy or anything else. Once they are there, you cannot treat them, you can only prevent more from occurring by managing your migraines well.




    [A brain lesion is any abnormal pathology - tumors, cysts, clots, anything.
    Just like all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares, all brain tumors are brain lesions, but not all brain lesions are brain tumors.]
  • Answer: yes,because when you drink all of the alcohol goes to the brain and you end up having migrains and head akes and sooner or later you feel like taking more and more drinks wich is what kills you
  • Answer: Benign tumors do not spread through the body and cause death on their own.

    They can, however, grow larger until the compress and interfere with some function of the body.

    So a slow growing benign brain tumor in a good location may not be a problem. If it is growing and pressing on some things it can be a problem.

    Location, location location.
  • Answer: Meningiomas are typically benign brain tumors. They are located in the dura or lining of the brain. On rare occasion they go into the bone. Benign does not mean without deficits or problems however. They are determined on a grading system class 1, 2 or 3...benign, atypical or malignant. Atypical meningioma has a higher chance of recurrence and malignant which are much rarer are cancerous. In answer to you question, most people have them removed and go on to live normal lives. I have had 2 removed...2 surgeries. I am very lucky. I do know of others who have had their lives changed totally and a few who have not made it. This is totally extreme but can happen. You must keep in mind that with any surgery fatality can be an issue.
