A spinal tumor is abnormal growth in or around the spinal cord cells, with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma tumors the most common nervous system. To af A spinal tumor is abnormal growth in or around the spinal cord cells, with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma tumors the most common nervous system. To affect such an important location for the human body, its symptoms cause neurological defects such as loss of sensitivity and strength, lack of control over the sphincters and back pain. It is very important to diagnose the medullary tumors of the nervous system in time to prevent the column from spreading and causing secondary spinal tumors or finish affecting other parts of the body. Its diagnosis can carry out a review of reflexes and muscle tenderness and a neurological examination. As their first symptoms are discovered, you must start as soon as possible a suitable and personalized treatment to prevent resulting in permanent injury. Corticosteroids, surgery and chemotherapy have been very beneficial to cure or ameliorate disease. ...
Brain tumors are formed because of the proliferation of cells that grow and multiply abnormally in the brain, being able to give blood vessels, c Brain tumors are formed because of the proliferation of cells that grow and multiply abnormally in the brain, being able to give blood vessels, cranial nerves, glands, bones, brain parenchyma and embryonic remains. It also may occur in two ways: by pressing brain areas for growth or invade surrounding tissue, in which case it is a malignant brain tumor. Symptoms of brain tumors include hand tremors, changes in mood, dizziness, unsteadiness and impaired alertness. Regarding treatment, absolutely it depends on where the brain tumor, degree of involvement and the patient's health are. Surgery is one of the most common measures to reduce the pressure that is suffering the brain. Also, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used when surgery has been ruled out or have not achieved the desired results with the same benefits. ...

Despite being a benign tumor it is aggressive because when diag Auditory or acoustic neuroma neuroma is a tumor that forms in the inner ear conductor. Despite being a benign tumor it is aggressive because when diagnosed in its early stages is not done, is growing in size and can reach compressing neural structures. Symptoms usually begin with a ringing or tinnitus on the side of the tumor which is accompanied by a gradual loss of hearing. In extreme cases the ear neurinoma can generate a hearing loss of the affected side. In most cases, it must be surgically removed. ...
Cerebral hemorrhage is a blood spill in brain tissue. This type of stroke by the interruption of blood flow in blood vessels of the brain and in most Cerebral hemorrhage is a blood spill in brain tissue. This type of stroke by the interruption of blood flow in blood vessels of the brain and in most cases is due to increased blood pressure is raised, although it can also be caused by alterations in blood coagulation malformation or a blood vessel. Among the symptoms that cause the most common brain hemorrhages are headaches, confusion, some stiff neck, vomiting. In the presence of these symptoms, you should receive urgent medical attention as quickly as possible. In the hospital, depending on the case and the severity of the patient, treatment will include: medications (antibiotics), continuous monitoring of the pressure of the head; observation of brain activity; rehabilitation; surgery ... ...
Congenital malformations are defects in the baby's body that develop during pregnancy. Thanks to advances in medicine birth defects occur very rarely, only 15 of every 1,000 newborns in Spain. Most of these malformations are of unknown origin but may be caused by genetic abnormalities, drug consumption, maternal age, diseases that the mother has during pregnancy and even food that keeps during pregnancy. ...
Cranial endoscopy is a technique increasingly used in neurosurgery, being a little invasive to access the cranial cavity through an endoscope procedure. Through small holes in the body can be accessed with the endoscopic device to it to carry out different types of surgeries that were previously much more complicated operations and requiring completely open the skull. Also, thanks to the endoscope can be displayed hidden spaces of the brain, in all angles, making it very useful for interventions such as those to treat ulnar nerve entrapment (which occurs in the elbow). By using the endoscope in this operation it is accomplished the final scar is much smaller than in conventional procedures. ...
It is any intervention that treats problems in the brain and surrounding structures. It may be necessary to intervene a tumor, bleeding from trauma, blood vessel problems, infections of the brain, cranial pressure and certain diseases such as epilepsy and Parkinson's. ...
Stroke means the sudden cessation of cerebral circulation after injury of cerebral vessels, which starts unexpectedly and can develop within minutes in major neurological syndromes. Three basic ways of mechanisms of action are known: haemorrhagic (atherosclerosis and hypertension are usually most frequent causes them); cerebral thrombosis, arteriosclerosis again being the most common cause; and, thirdly, strokes. Clinically, depending on the location of the lesion some specific neurological signs, which may be in the form of motor, sensory impairment, and, in severe cases, coma and death will manifest. In the overall treatment of stroke it is essential to control risk factors such as hypertension, heart disease, snuff, diabetes mellitus ... ...
