Drinking Alcohol And Brain Tumor
Would smoking cannabis or drinking alcohol with a brain tumor cause it to have potentially harmful or adverse effects on the person;make tumor worse?

I've not heard of alcohol's benefits, if any, but no problems either. Relax. Consider asking the oncologist involved for an opinion. Best! ...Read more

I typically allow my patients to drink in moderation (no more than 1 drink a night) 6-12 months after being off all brain related medications. But again, please see your personal physician before acting on my suggestion. ...Read more
I have a benign brain tumor, but I've been off meds for a good 5 days now. Is it safe for me to drink alcohol?
Maybe: Alcohol in moderation should not complicate a "benign" brain tumor such as a meningioma or schwannoma. If you have a low grade glioma, then the tumor is not really benign. Whether your liver can tolerate the alcohol may depend on what drugs you have been on which were just stopped. Consult your doctors before drinking. ...Read more

That Depends...: A general 'shakiness' can be due to weakness, or it could represent a metabolic condition unrelated to your tumor. Some meningiomas are benign and barely grow over decades, but some can cause irritation to the surface of the brain around them. I would have a thorough medical evaluation and a follow-up MRI to see which this could be. ...Read more

Abnormal cell growth: All tumors are formed from cells that do not follow the rules - they grow faster/differently than they should, not controlled by local and systemic chemical signals. There are many different types of brain tumors - some very slow growing over decades that cause no problems but may "push" the brain a little. But others grow very fast, damaging or "crushing" normal brain next to them. ...Read more
