Brain Cancer Herbal Medicine Stage 2 – About 3,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with a brain tumor each year, most of them between the ages of 3 and 12. These tumors are very different from brain tumors in adults and are generally more responsive to treatment. The majority of brain tumors are caused by genetic abnormalities in the tumor cells.
Researchers are studying the relationship between children’s parents and brain tumors with exposure to certain chemicals. Some chemicals can change the structure of genes that protect the body from cancer. In addition, children who have received radiation therapy to the head as part of treatment for other cancers have a higher risk of developing brain tumors, therefore prevention measures by taking herbal brain cancer drugs are very important.
Brain tumors may be benign or malignant. Benign tumors do not contain cancer cells. If successfully removed by surgery, they often do not return after treatment. Benign tumors that cannot be completely removed, can continue to grow and may require treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation. Malignant or cancerous brain tumors usually grow quickly, and can spread to surrounding tissues and possibly come back after treatment.
