Abstract:
Background: There are gender disparities in the long-term effects of brain tumours on quality of life (QOL), and bare bones research. Methods: QOL measurements were evaluated in 81 individuals with brain tumours who had been alive for 5-7 days in a row.many years after the operation. These individuals had 22% gliomas, 51% meningiomas, and 16% acoustic neuromas.pituitary adenomas, and 11% had neurinomas. The Karnofsky Performance Scale served as the QOL indicators (KPS) along with the Health Measurement Questionnaire (HMQ). Conclusions: Compared to men, women frequently report lower QOL and more distress. A worse quality of life (QOL) in females with brain tumours may indicate more severe suffering.
