Kolkata| June 9

About 12.5 lakh people are affected by brain tumor in India resulting in about 1000 deaths. Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals chose World Brain Tumor Day as a platform to address issues relating to brain tumor with novel intention of attempting to reduce the death count.

At the very top, to cull away the fear it was mentioned that nowadays brain tumor surgery is operated via endoscopic technique which is non-surgical non-evasive. In fact most of brain tumors surgeries are treated endoscopically save for the severe ones of course.

The onset of tumor is marked by decrease in consciousness, vomiting, headache, abnormal behavior sometimes manifesting as Aphasia or speech defect in some cases.

If that happens one should recourse to immediate diagnosis which are – physical examination, neurological exam, CT scan, MRI, Angiogram, Spinal Tap and Biopsy – in that particular order of increasingly escalating complications.

The treatment involves surgery involving Novalis TX machine and other high-end microscope with at least 10X magnification. The procedure was mentioned as neuro-navigation and CUSA, an Ulta sonic method.

In the subsequent slides we were shown various grave tumors which were successfully treated, including the most dangerous, pituitary tumor.

Surprisingly 20% of human population harbor pituitary tumor albeit most of them are benign.

All said and done what emerged was that a tumor is no more a catastrophe. “Patients can now look to a life beyond brain tumour – a life that is healthy and productive”, summed up Dr Rupali Basu, President and CEO ER, Apollo Hospitals Group, India. Emon and Surojit who were present to lend support rendered the audi with a song apiece
