Brain tumors are the number one cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The most common form of brain cancer is a form called glioblastoma, which is usually diagnosed in childhood and usually spreads to other parts of the body.
But more than half of all brain cancers, including brain tumor, are diagnosed in adults, and the risk of developing a brain tumor in adulthood is about five times higher than in childhood.
The latest CDC data shows that the rate of brain tumor diagnosis in adults has more than doubled since 2000, from 4.2 percent to 11.3 percent.
There are currently more than 5,000 new brain tumor cases in the U.S. every day, and experts say there is a real danger that the new cases could spread to other areas of the brain.
In addition, the incidence of brain tumors in adults is up by about 40 percent since 2000.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, recently issued new guidelines that recommend treating a patient with a brain swelling if they develop symptoms like dizziness, fatigue, weakness, numbness or weakness, difficulty breathing, or difficulty swallowing.
But that means you’ll have to consider a number of other possible factors when considering whether you should see a doctor.
The most likely risk factors are: You have an advanced disease like cancer or diabetes, which makes you more susceptible to a brain infection.
You have a history of migraines, epilepsy, or depression.
Your condition can lead to seizures.
Your symptoms are severe or prolonged and you’re having trouble concentrating.
If you have been hospitalized for a brain cancer or are pregnant or nursing a baby, you may be at greater risk for developing an infection.
Your treatment may include chemotherapy or radiation.
Your doctor will monitor your condition, and he or she may prescribe additional medications to control your symptoms.
