Understanding Head Cancer

Cancer begins in cells, the building blocks that make up tissues. Tissues make up the organs of the body.

Normally, cells grow and divide to form new cells, as the body needs them. When cells grow old, they die, and new cells take their place.

Sometimes this orderly process goes wrong. New cells form when the body does not need them, and old cells do not die when they should. These extra cells can form a mass of tissue called a growth or Cancer.

Benign and Malignant Head Cancer

Head Cancer can be benign or malignant:

The Head is a soft, spongy mass of tissue. It is protected by the bones of the skull and three thin membranes called meninges. Watery fluid called cerebrospinal fluid cushions the Head. This fluid flows through spaces between the meninges and through spaces within the Head called ventricles.

The head region is an anatomically diverse area of the body that is composed of soft tissue, bones, skin, and a variety of glands and organs. Head Cancer encompasses a wide range of Cancer that can develop in several areas of the head , including the throat, larynx (voice box), nose, sinuses, and mouth.

Most head cancers are squamous cell carcinomas — malignant (cancerous) growths that begin in the flat squamous cells that form the epithelium (inner lining) in many parts of the head. A Cancer limited to this layer of cells is usually called carcinoma in situ. A Cancer that grows beyond the squamous cells and moves into deeper tissues is called invasive squamous cell carcinoma. Adenocarcinomas arise in glandular cells, such as those found in the salivary glands.

A Head Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells within the Head or the central spinal canal. Head Cancer can crop up from the Head cells, the membranes around the Head (known as meninges), nerves, or glands. These damage produce inflammation and places pressure within the skull and compresses the Head tissues. All such tumours are intrinsically serious and life-threatening because of its insidious and infiltrative character in the intracranial cavity.The sites of the tumour, the type of tissues involved are certain factors used to classify Head Cancer. They cab be cancerous or non-cancerous.
Different types of Head Cancer include:

»Pituitary tumors
»Pineal gland tumors
»Lymphoma of the brain
»Prime germ cell tumors of the brain

Surgery : Surgery is often the first treatment if the tumour can be removed without causing harm to the surrounding brain tissue. Treatment of brain cancer is usually complex. Most treatment plans involve several consulting doctors.The team of doctors includes neurosurgeons (surgical specialists in the brain and nervous system), oncologists, radiation oncologists (doctors who practice radiation therapy), and of course, your primary health-care provider. A patient's team may include a dietitian, a social worker, a physical therapist, and probably other specialists.
