Brain Tumors and Social Security Disability Benefits

Brain Tumors and Social Security Disability Benefits

A brain tumor is a growth in the brain made of abnormal cells. There are a variety of types of brain tumors that can occur in the brain tissue, and they may be classified as benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Both types can have a devastating effect on brain function and can cause brain damage as the tumors expand.

A primary brain tumor is one that originates in the brain tissue, whereas a secondary brain tumor refers to a cancer that has spread from another area of the body. The abnormal growth may result from cancer that originated in the breast, pancreas, stomach, prostate, or other body part. In cases where a brain tumor begins growing autonomously in the brain, mutations, in the DNA of brain cells cause the cells to grow and divide, forming a mass that is made up of abnormal cells. In many cases, brain surgery will be necessary to remove the tumor.

Brain Tumor Treatments

Surgery is usually an option in cases where the brain tumor is in an operable position. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are also used to shrink invasive tumors and minimize symptoms. There are a variety of medications that can help brain tumor patients using targeted destruction of presence of the tumor, such as motor skills, speech, muscle strength and cognitive processes.
