Thread: Does Brain Injury cause brain tumors?

    Thanks

    Thank you for your reply, it is appreciated however after reading your post I did some research and it turns out that not all brain tumors are cancerous and I don't remember stating that he had brain cancer, so I went back thorough my Father's records which took forever to obtain and a lot of fighting with the US Marines and those records which my family had and it turns out that my father did not have a cancerous brain tumor. I also discovered that some brain tumors begin as lesions on the brain and the pressure that is sustained from the lesion being present and the tight enclosed space can cause a tumor to form... a very dangerous tumor at that.

    Thanks

    Association between traumatic brain injury and the subsequent risk of brain cancer.
    ...After adjusting for sociodemographic characteristics, the hazard of being diagnosed with malignant brain tumors during the 3-year follow-up period was 4.67 (95% CI: 1.84-11.83) times greater for those who sustained a TBI than for patients in the comparison cohort. In addition, we found an association between TBI severity and malignant brain tumor among patients with TBI (p=0.033). Our findings suggest a positive correlation between TBI and the relatively short-term development of malignant neoplasms of the brain...
