Brain Tumor Information and the Risks They Pose

According to the John Hopkins Comprehensive Brain Tumor Center, a brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain. These often cause symptoms that a doctor should associate with a potential brain tumor such as:

  • Headaches
  • Seizures
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty speaking or thinking
  • Vision changes or loss of hearing
  • Memory loss

Primary vs. Secondary Brain Tumors

Brain tumors come in two forms, primary and secondary. Primary tumors originate in the brain, while secondary tumors originate elsewhere in the body before they metastasize in another location. Secondary tumors are typically types of cancer that go untreated and spread to other parts of the body. They commonly include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Skin cancer

It is critical to catch any brain tumor as soon as possible so it can be treated or removed. Failure to do so often results in serious complications or death. In addition, it is important to investigate why the condition that led to a secondary brain tumor was not caught before it had a chance to spread. These are the types of questions we ask as we prepare our strategy to win your case.

Injuries During Surgery

Brain injuries can just as easily result from substandard operating procedures even after they were properly diagnosed. Surgeons and their staff must abide by a strict standard of care during operations. Actions that fall below this standard of care are considered malpractice, could result in serious brain complications, and a patient could be entitled to compensation due to the medical negligence.
