Brain Tumors

Description: Abnormal cell growth in the brain.
Symptoms: Symptoms of brain tumors depend on the location of the tumor. There may be no clinical symptoms until the tumor has grown significantly. These include behavioral changes and blindness.
Diagnosis: Diagnosis requires an MRI or CT scan.
Treatment: Tumors may be treated with chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery to remove the tumor. Corticosteroids may also be used to manage swelling. Severe tumors are usually fatal, but treatment can prolong the animal's life by a number of months.
