Lipoma of the brain – symptoms, treatment
Lipoma – a disease that most people used to be considered harmless. In most cases this is true, but sometimes the disease can be very dangerous. Example – lipoma of the brain that occurs very rarely, but can lead to serious complications and even death.
Causes and symptoms of the disease
It is difficult to say why it formed the lipoma in the brain. Sometimes even experienced doctors are not able to determine the cause of the disease.
The third way – needle-aspiration. Simply put, it is ordinary liposuction. Through a small hole in the skull into the body of the lipoma is injected with a fine tube through which the fat mass of the tumor sucked. This method is relatively safe and not too traumatic, but it has one very significant drawback. After the operation, remains empty capsule of the lipoma, which again can be filled with fat.
Anyway, if the lipoma is dangerous to health, needs to be treated. Do not delay with this – with the appearance of any symptoms should consult with a qualified specialist.
