Brain Cancer

A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain or close to your brain. About 5% of brain tumors may be linked to hereditary genetic factors. Symptoms of brain cancer is continuous headaches, vomiting, having any vision problems etc. In the beginning stages of brain cancer, the cancer can be found on the brain or on the tissue near the brain. Cancer cells can start anywhere from your kidneys, lungs, or your colons. They can start there and end up going to your brain.

Scientists are doing research right now to help prevent and cure brain cancer and any other cancers. Researchers are saying that the Polio virus can be a factor to curing brain tumors. It could cure it because the virus will attach itself to the cancer cells, and the Polio actually helps reduce the size of the cells. Before the scientists try this method to an actual patient, they have to do trial runs on animals. And after they inject the Polio into the animal they have to bring the animal through Chemotherapy to see if they will recover properly

The scientists have been doing trial runs on monkeys because they are the only amimal that is closest to being a human. Giving the monkey the polio they discovered that the test monkeys were recovering rather faster than they projected them to. After months of recovery the animals were back to their normal health.   When the mice and monkey were injected with the Hybrid, they had a full recovery with only one dose.

In conclusion, scientists believe that they have found the cure to all cancer. But before they can inform the public they have to make sure that the Polio is 100% effective and there won’t be any side effect from the Polio virus. The scientist have been doing trial runs on monkeys and mice. And the tests are coming back positive.

  1. Brain cancer does not have a cure and no one knows where a brain tumor can come from. New cells form when the body doesn’t need them, and old or damaged cells don’t die as they should. There are very few treatments to brain tumors. One treatment is getting surgical removal of the tumor but this can be very dangerous because it involves cutting into your head near your brain. Brain cancer can occur from to much radiation exposure so be alert if you’ve been around any type of radiation.http://abc2.org/guidance/brain-cancer-facts

  2. There is no way to prevent brain cancer but there is a way to find them. The more head X-rays a person takes they have a higher chance of having brain cancer. There are multiple ways to approach the tumor in the brain but trying to take it out directly may not work for some people. Some doctors recommend radiation therapy. This helps with the fast growing brain cancers.

  3. I think that if the person who has cancer is treated with polio, even though it might treat the cancer what will happen if the person then receives polio and then that would lead to the person to getting more treatments and more suffering. I think that it would be a good treatment if it actually works, but it depends on the person getting treated. Also there was shown to be about a 31.7% chance of survival in men and a 34.4% chance in women, so there seems to be a slight chance to survive. The only thing you can really do is fight, the rest depends on if the tumor is removable.http://braintumor.org/brain-tumor-information/brain-tumor-facts/

  4. You asked if there was a way to prevent brain cancer, the answer to that question is not yet. You can’t exactly prevent brain cancer but there are things you can do to have a better chance in preventing it. Before you do anything you can look at your family history if someone in your family suffered from brain cancer you have a higher chance of getting it. One important thing you can do is pay attention to the symptoms such as continuous headaches, nausea, seizers, and weakness. If you notice you have any of these symptoms it is very important you contact your doctor immediately. By doing this you can give yourself a better chance in preventing brain cancer.

  5. you asked if there was any way to prevent brain cancer and the answer is no. there is no way to just prevent it but there are some symptoms to look for so you can maybe get a head start on treatment. some signs may be headache, weakness, seizures, or speech problems/slurs. I got my information from – http://www.cancercenter.com/brain-cancer/symptoms/?source=GOOGLPPC&channel=paid+search&c=paid%2520search%3AGoogle%3ANon+Brand%3ABroad%3ANon+Brand%3ECancer+Type%3A+Brain%3ABroad&k_clickid=d5936233-e06d-4039-9859-1c399db0ce50

  6. In your paper you asked if there is anyway to prevent brain cancer. There is no way to prevent brain cancer, but there are symptoms are person can watch for to try to get treatment as soon as possible. Some symptoms are headaches, weakness, nausea, or seizures. Some other signs that a person might have brain cancer is if they have speech or coordination problems. I got this information from

  7. You asked if there were ways to prevent brain cancer, and to a certain extent the answer is no. There are no true ways to ‘prevent’ brain cancer, but there are certain risk factors you should watch for. Some of these risk factors include repetitive exposure to radiation, family history of Neurofibromatosis type 1 and type 2 Tuberous sclerosis, Von Hippel-Lindau disease, and immune system disorders including AIDS and lymphoma. You should watch for these disorders and diseases in you everyday life because they increase your chances of getting brain cancer.
