A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of cells in the brain. They may be benign or malignant, also even benign brain tumors can be a significant health risk. As the cells grow and multiply, they can cause considerable pressure in the nearby areas of the brain. The patient may experience a wide variety of symptoms ranging from headaches to nausea, or they may not experience any symptoms at all. All brain tumors should be treated seriously and they always require the attention of a medical doctor.
Marijuana can be an integral component of a comprehensive brain tumor treatment program. If approved by the doctor, marijuana can be used to reduce pain, quell nausea, and ease the discomfort caused by certain medications.
