“There are no specific reasons of why brain tumors happen, though radiation is one important cause for tumor formation. It can happen to anyone irrespective of gender, age, or place of residence, whether urban or rural. With timely detection of brain tumor, the chances of patient survival increase by 80-90%. However, mortality rate of brain tumor is less compared to cancer deaths in the country”, Said Dr Mukund Prasad
